The market for Gio Gonzalez will be more robust than it was in the winter, with the Milwaukee Brewers now interested in bringing the lefty back, according to major league sources.
The Mets, who were only minimally interested in Gonzalez during the offseason, are more intrigued now. Gonzalez is seen internally as a more likely addition than free agent starter Dallas Keuchel.
The Mets sent a scout to watch Gonzalez's final start for the Yankees' Triple-A affiliate on Friday, but the game was rained out. Gonzalez exercised an opt-out clause in his contract the following day.
The Yankees announced on Monday that Gonzalez was officially released from his minor-league contract.
