Mike Puma from the New York Post reports that the Mets are considering Tyler Flowers to bolster catching depth. Currently McCann is the man for the starting job and Tomas Nido is penciled in as the backup, but the Mets are looking to add another depth piece at C.
The Mets’ first-string spot behind the plate belongs to James McCann, whom they signed to a four-year, $40.6MM contract in free agency. Tomas Nido is slated to begin the season as the club’s backup, but the 26-year-old has typically posted woeful offensive numbers. Patrick Mazeika, the other catcher on the Mets’ 40-man roster, is a 27-year-old who hasn’t played above Double-A ball to this point. The Mets also have vets Caleb Joseph and Bruce Maxwell on hand as non-roster invitees, though their track records in the majors pale in comparison to Flowers’. Mike Puma via NY Post.
