Mets Join Sheffield Hunt

UPDATE: MLB Network's Harold Reynolds is reporting that the Mets and Gary Sheffield have agreed to a deal.

SI.com's Jon Heyman is reporting that the Mets have interest in free agent outfielder Gary Sheffield. Heyman says that Sheffield prefers the Mets because they have more flexibility to play him. "The Mets told him, 'You deliver, and you'll play,' '' the Sheffield confidant said. Sheffield would cost the minimum 400,000 dollars, a very good price for a player with serious power potential.

The Reds and Mets are also interested.
