Feel free to add the New York Mets, to the lengthy list of potential suitors for Cuban first baseman Jose Abreu. After attending a much publicized showcase in the Dominican Republic last week, Mets international scouts reported back with positive early reports on the 26-year old slugger's talent. Speaking on a condition of anonymity, a Mets official confirmed their interest to the New Jersey Star-Ledger as well as the teams presence at the event. With an official evaluation pending, mum was the word in the New York offices on Monday. "I heard that his power was impressive," the official told The Star-Ledger Considered to be the top offensive international free agent on the market, Abreu posted a .387/.535/.986 with 13 home runs in 42 games in Cuba last season. He's expected to command a deal similar to what fellow countrymen Yoenis Cespedes (4 years, 36 million) and Yasiel Puig (7 years, 42 million), received in their first taste of free agency. Noted parties interested in his services thus far include the Texas Rangers, San Francisco Giants, Chicago White Sox, Miami Marlins, and Boston Red Sox. Let the bidding wars commence.
