The Mets are looking at four players who could help the club at second and third base, according to a report from MLB Network insider Ken Rosenthal.
There are three free agents in that group, including Eduardo Nunez, Todd Frazier and Neil Walker, a former Met. The team is also said to be exploring the possibility of a trade for the Pirates' Josh Harrison.
The Mets would likely need to deal promising young outfielder Brandon Nimmo in order to acquire Harrison from Pittsburgh, according to Rosenthal.
Harrison asked the Pirates to be traded after the team dealt ACE Gerrit Cole and outfielder Andrew McCutchen to the Astros and Giants, respectively.
The Mets already have some good depth in the outfield, with Yoenis Cespedes, Jay Bruce, Juan Lagares and Michael Conforto, who hopes to be ready by May as he works his way back from left shoulder surgery.
In addition to Walker, Nunez and Frazier also have experience playing in New York.
Nunez played parts of four seasons with the Yankees after debuting with the team in 2010. Frazier, who grew up in New Jersey, was traded to the Yankees last July.
