Mets assistant GM John Ricco spoke with reporters on Sunday for MLB's Winter Meetings.
- Ricco said Ben Zobrist is the Mets' top target, but will look at other players in case the Mets are unable to sign him (Dec. 6).
- Ricco said it was unlikely the Mets would sign Yoenis Cespedes, saying his price tag may be "north of what we would consider" (Dec. 6).
- The Mets are not looking to sign an everyday outfielder (Dec. 6).
- While the Mets also plan on targeting relievers Darren O'Day and Ryan Madson, Ricco said the Mets will look at the next tier of relievers in case they cannot land either (Dec. 6).
- The Mets would like to bring back Bartolo Colon as a reliever, and he is receptive to the idea, according to Ricco (Dec. 6).
- Jon Niese is available to teams via trade, but Ricco said the Mets are not actively shopping him (Dec. 6).
MLB's Winter Meetings run from Dec. 6 to Dec. 10.
