The New York Mets’ catching situation isn’t ideal, to say the least. It should be no surprise that they’ve expressed interest in a backup.
The New York Mets‘ current catching corps consists of Wilson Ramos, Tomas Nido, and Rene Rivera. Unfortunately, Rivera isn’t a major league player at his age anymore. Nido is a disaster offensively. Meanwhile, Ramos has a long injury history.
It should go without saying that the Mets could still use a quality backup backstop. According to Jon Heyman of MLB Network, they’re kicking the tires on one.
