The New York Mets need an answer to the second base. The team traded Asdrubal Cabrera with the Phillies for junior league pitcher Franklyn Kilome during the summer, and now the position is practically empty except for Jeff McNeil. The days of Daniel Murphy are long, far away.
But according to insider Jon Heyman, the Mets are now among a handful of teams that have reached second baseman Brian Dozier, who could fill their gap nicely.
The Mets are among the teams that have been discussing Brian Dozier lately, while Nats, Rox and others seem to be more logical. Market for him that starts to heat up.

Citizens and the rocky mountains have also been linked to Dozier. It seems that the Rockies were serious enough to offer him an agreement, but it would only be short-term (incidentally, they recently signed Murphy in December). The Dodgers are also available to bring it back for next season.
Dozier may not be stunning with his averages, but he is a real hitter of power. he
Things are starting to heat up for Brian Dozier. Excellent candidate rebound. Gold glove a year ago, 40 plus HR in 2016.
