The Mets keep talking with agent Scott Boras in hope of avoiding an arbitration hearing with Oliver Perez. They are talking about both a one-year and multi-year deal.
“We’ve talking,” assistant GM John Ricco said. “All along we’ve said we want to avoid arbitration.”
That might be the case, but Ricco isn’t optimistic about a long-term deal.
“Scott’s M.O.is to not take free agent years off the table,” Ricco said. “He wants to take them to free agency and get a big contract.”
