The Mets will "probably" be looking to next fill needs elsewhere on the roster after reportedly coming to terms with RH reliever Anthony Swarzak on a two-year deal worth $14 million, Mets GM Sandy Alderson said Wednesday at the Winter Meetings.
Alderson didn't rule out acquiring another reliever later in the offseason, but said he expected the team's focus to now shift to filling the other needs -- second base and first base/outfield.
The Mets were linked to free agent 3B/1B Todd Frazier earlier on Wednesday. Alderson said earlier this week that he expects Asdrubal Cabrera to play primarily third base this season, but seemed open to the possibility of that changing.
"It's possible but it's not a scenario right now that I foresee," Alderson said about acquiring a player whose presence would mean Cabrera doesn't play third base regularly. "It could change. ... we're trying to be flexible -- responding to opportunities. ... we're trying to be flexible and open-minded about it."
While seeking to acquire a second baseman, the Mets have been linked to Ian Kinsler of the Tigers, which you can read more about here.
