WFAN’s Sweeny Murti reported earlier in the day that the Mets met with Colon’s agent.
Seattle and Atlanta would also seem to be possibilities for the 40-year-old right-hander, who did not receive a qualifying offer from the A’s and thus will not require the loss of a draft pick.
Colon finished second in the AL with 18 wins and second with a 2.65 ERA in 190 1/3 innings last season. The teams that want him seem to prefer him for one year, but one will likely blink and offer him a two-year deal in the $20 million range.
