    Young signed a one-year, $7.25 million deal with the Mets this offseason in the hopes of building back his value before hitting the free agent market again, but instead he hit just .205 with eight homers and a .630 OPS in 88 games.

    Here’s the rundown of where this winter’s top 150 free agents are landing, continuously updated throughout the offseason.

    Curtis Granderson AP

    While there has been some conflicting information on the Mets’ interest in a meeting with right-hander Bronson Arroyo, general manager Sandy Alderson has another free agent on his radar. FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reports that Alderson had a meeting with Curtis Granderson yesterday. We heard about a month ago that the Mets had “preliminary interest”…

  8. The Mets sign Chris Young

    Nov 22, 2013, 9:14 AM EST

    Minnesota Twins v Oakland Athletics

    Jon Heyman reports that the Mets have signed outfielder Chris Young to a one-year contract, pending a physical. The deal is for $7.2 million. This makes some sense. Young is coming off of two straight blah seasons (in 2013 he hit .200/.280/.379 with 12 homers and 10 steals). But he does have a good mix of…

    Coco Crisp Getty

    Oakland announced four decisions on players with options for 2014, exercising their contracts on Coco Crisp and Brett Anderson while declining on Kurt Suzuki and Chris Young. Crisp will make $7.5 million and Anderson will make $8 million, but they chose to buy out Suzuki for $650,000 instead of paying him $8.5 million and bought…

  12. Where will the Red Sox spend this winter?

    Nov 1, 2013, 1:07 PM EST

    Masahiro Tanaka

    With Jacoby Ellsbury, Mike Napoli, Stephen Drew and Jarrod Saltalamacchia all filing for free agency, the world champion Red Sox would seem to have a whole lot of flexibility this winter. Even without signing any replacements, they have a perfectly legitimate 25-man roster ready to go: SS: Xander Bogaerts: $500,000 RF: Shane Victorino: $13 million…

Alberto Callaspo contributed an RBI…

    Josh Reddick

    Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick has been activated from the 15-day disabled list and is in the lineup for tonight’s game against the White Sox.

    Josh Reddick Getty

    Josh Reddick landed on the disabled list last week with a nagging injury to his right wrist, but there’s still no clarity on when he’ll be ready to rejoin the Athletics’ lineup. Jane Lee of MLB.com reports that Reddick will likely wait about a week before picking up a bat. If he’s still having discomfort,…

    Jordan Norberto

    Jordan Norberto had a 2.77 ERA and 46/22 K/BB ratio in 52 innings out of Oakland’s bullpen last season, but he failed to crack the Opening Day roster this year and today the A’s released him. The move cleared room on the 40-man roster for first baseman Daric Barton, who’s rejoining the A’s after previously…
