The Mets believe free agent Howie Kendrick could be a "potential fit" at second base, reports Mike Puma of the New York Post.
Kendrick has established a presence in clubhouses, similar to the way Curtis Granderson did with the Mets, and according to Puma, the team appreciates his versatility: he can play first base and in the outfield, as well.
Kendrick split time between the Phillies and Nationals in 2017, hitting .315 with nine homers and 41 RBIs in 91 games. He hit .340 in 39 games with the Phillies before hitting .293 in 52 games with the Nationals.
The 34-year-old spent the first nine seasons of his career with the Angels before playing for the Dodgers in 2015 and 2016. He was traded to the Phillies in November of 2016 and traded to the Nationals in July of 2017
The Mets have recently attempted to acquire Josh Harrison from the Pirates, according to Puma
