Mets are interested in Tyler Flowers if he is non-tendered by the White Sox
“I put it at 51-49 in favor of staying because of the contractual conversation we’ve had before,” Flowers said. “They’ve reached out to me to try to see where each other is at. If they didn’t care at all, they would have done nothing and non-tendered me. The respect is there no matter what happens.
“There have been a couple of conversations, and it seems like it’s getting pretty close. But that doesn’t guarantee anything. Even if you talk with a team before the [tender] date, you can’t bank on any of that.”
If Flowers is let go by the White Sox, the Mets will be interested in picking him up as a back-up to Travis d’Arnaud, tweets Mike Puma of the New York Post. Flowers took a career-high 275 trips to the plate in 2013 but struck out nearly seven times for every one walk and he finished under the Mendoza line.He will only turn 28 in January, so he could still turn things around.
