This from Mike Puma of the NY Post:
Brian Wilson probably shouldn’t change his ring tone to “Meet the Mets” anytime soon.
According to a baseball source, the veteran closer didn’t impress the Mets during his workout at UCLA on Saturday and wasn’t deemed worthy of a major league contract at this point in his rehab from Tommy John surgery. Wilson, the source said, wasn’t interested in a minor league deal.
“Physically, he’s not ready,” the source said. “He’s got a ways to go.”
We haven’t heard the last of this yet. There’s only a few household names left on the market, and the Mets will keep up the pretense that they are engaging these players as long as they can.
