After departing last week’s Winter Meetings with nothing more than a signed contract from David Wright, the Mets continue to actively pursue free-agent help and are “kicking the tires” on outfielder Cody Ross, according to multiple sources.
The 31-year-old Ross initially was seeking a three-year deal in the $25 million range to remain with the Red Sox, but it’s unlikely the Mets would go beyond two years with any free agent.
Ross also has been linked to the Mariners and Yankees, among others.
Ross resurrected his career by hitting .267 with 22 homers and 81 RBIs last season with the Red Sox.
