James McCann seems to be a NY Met
The Mets are finalizing a deal with catcher James McCann, reportedly for four years, $40 million.
SNY's Andy Martino reported Thursday that McCann and the Mets had reached the five-yard line in negotiations as of Wednesday night and that it wouldn't take much more negotiating for the sides to close a deal.
McCann, 30, was viewed as the second-best free agent catcher on the market behind J.T. Realmuto, and the Mets had been targeting McCann over Realmuto, per Martino.
