Relief pitcher Bryan Shaw, who reportedly received a multi-year offer from the Mets in November, might be waiting for other closers such as Greg Holland and Wade Davis to sign contracts before he commits to any deals, reports Mike Puma of the New York Post.
Marc Carig of Newsday reported that an executive from a different team thinks Shaw has multiple three-year offers.
Shaw has been oft-linked with the Mets since Mickey Callaway was announced as the team's manager.
Shaw, who worked with Callaway while with the Indians, had a 3.52 ERA (2.96 FIP) and 1.21 WHIP with 73 strikeouts and 22 walks in 76 2/3 innings (79 games) in 2017. The reliever has been with the Indians for five seasons.
On top of Shaw, the Mets have reportedly shown interest in relievers Addison Reed, Brandon Morrow and Mike Minor.
