The Mets have interviewed Tigers' vice president of player development Dave Littlefield for their open GM role, SNY's Andy Martino confirmed on Wednesday.
Martino noted the list of GM candidates was incomplete on Tuesday, and it appears that is the case with the Littlefield interview. The 58-year-old joined the Pirates in 2001, serving as its senior vice president. He also worked as their GM on a temporary basis in 2007.
After the 2007 season, Littlefield joined the Cubs as a scout, and would later hold the same role with the Tigers in 2014. In 2015, he was promoted to his current position.
With the first round of interviews wrapping up soon, the known list of candidates along with Littlefield is Kim Ng, Gary LaRocque, Chaim Bloom, De Jon Watson and Doug Melvin. There is also the possibility of agents Brodie Van Wagenen and Casey Close emerging on that list as well.
