The New York Yankees and Mets are partaking in what's become an interleague tradition; the Subway Series. Anthony DiComo of MLB.com believes one current Yankees player and free agent-to-be could be a potential fit for the Mets; right-handed starting pitcher Phil Hughes. Phil Hughes will be FA this winter. His fly ball tendencies wouldn't be huge issue at Citi. #Mets should have ample $ to spend. Just saying. — Anthony DiComo (@AnthonyDiComo) May 28, 2013 Hughes recently went through his last session of arbitration eligibility. As a result, he's earning $7.15 million in the final year of his current contract with the Yankees. There hasn't been much talk of an extension between the Yankees and Hughes, as New York generally lets its players finish out their contracts and hit the open market before considering new deals. Hughes' numbers aren't especially impressive, but he could receive interest in free agency considering his age and former top-prospect status. DiComo points out that the Mets will have money to spend, and they figure to be interested in a veteran presence to pair with young starters Matt Harvey, Jonathon Niese and Zack Wheeler. Additionally, he believes Hughes and his fly-ball tendencies could be a much better fit in Citi Field than it is in Yankee Stadium. Over 10 starts this season, Hughes has posted an ERA of 4.97 with a 1.380 WHIP. The 26-year-old owns a career ERA and WHIP of 4.44 and 1.298 over seven seasons in the majors.
