Last week the New York Mets signed Pedro Feliciano to a minor league contract, but while speaking to Jim Bowden on SiriusXM Sports Radio this past Saturday, Sandy Alderson indicated that there is still work to be done when it comes to his bullpen.
While the team has been linked to former San Francisco Giants reliever Brian Wilson throughout the offseason, they reportedly came away unimpressed after watching him workout almost two weeks ago, feeling he wasn’t worthy of a major league deal at that time and physically was unready. The Mets General Manager may hope that things have changed in a hurry as he told Duquette that he may watch The Beard work again in the coming days.
If you’re of the mindset that Wilson would be a welcome addition to a rather lifeless bullpen and, like me, were hoping the Mets would be able to get him at a reasonable price and at least see his value rise as he progresses throughout the year, then this comes as good news. I think both parties are interested in making something work and with the Shaun Marcum deal now behind them, the front office is likely to focus its efforts on Wilson this week and can then move onto what may or may not be happening with Michael Bourn.
