Last week Jon Heyman reported that the Mets were one of several teams interested in Jack Wilson.  Now Wilson's agent is confirming that the Mets have expressed interest in the veteran middle infielder.  Any decisions on the middle infield are dependent upon Jose Reyes; if Reyes returns then Wilson would be an unneeded commodity but with Reyes gone Wilson could become an intricate part in the development of both Tejada and Murphy or a replacement if one were to struggle. 

The 33 y/o right handed batter has a life BA of .266 with an OBP of .307 but over the last few years hasn't hit better then .249 with an OBP around .270.  2004 was his best season, which included an All-Star appearance and silver slugger award at SS ( .308/ .335/ .459 / .794).  Wilson still holds a .970 Fld Pct. at SS, last season he played 45 games at 2B and 4 games at 3B, where he posted fld. pct. of .984/.954 respectively. 

If the Mets lose Jose Reyes to free agency, they’ll have an eye on adding veteran shortstop/middle infield experience. The team has expressed interest in 33-year-old free agent Jack Wilson, agent Page Odle said yesterday. source NY Post
