Reports: Mets Could Be Done Making Outfield Additions

As per reports coming out of the New York Mets media corps, the team could very well be done making any significant additions to their outfield after trading for Keon Broxton on Saturday afternoon.

Mike Puma of the New York Post noted “[it] sounds like the Mets aren’t so sure there will be another major league outfield addition […] this offseason”, then Matt Ehalt of The Record echoed those sentiments, quoting a source as saying “the Mets’ outfield depth is now set”.

Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen has been linked to a number of top-to-mid-tier outfielders throughout the offseason, with names like A.J. Pollock, Adam Jones, and — very early on in the process — Bryce Harper being named as potential targets.

With the names listed above all still available, a hypothetical perfect fit for this roster in Nick Markakis still lurking on the market, and the Mets current outfield depth chart not exactly screaming “contention-ready”, Van Wagenen stepping away from the market now would be a questionable move.
