According to Ken Rosenthal via MLBTR, the Mets are showing heavy interest in second baseman Adam Kennedy, formerly of the A’s.
The Diamondbacks are also interested in the 34 year old Kennedy and view him as a potential starter at second base.
Kennedy batted .289 with 11 homeruns and 63 RBIs for the Oakland A’s. He also scored 65 runs and stole 20 bases with a decent .758 OPS for a second baseman.
Again, the Mets continue to operate with both hands tied behind their back as long as Castillo remains a Met.
That said, I like Kennedy and he’d be an above average option in the number two spot of the lineup. He batted .304 with a .364 OBP against right handed hitters.
