Mets are engaged with Trevor Bauer. They expect to hear something — one way or another — in the next 24 hours or so. Situation is fluid but there’s hope. @ByRobertMurray tweeted that the sides are talking.

The Mets promised to be big players in free agency under new owner Steve Cohen, and the organization has followed through on that. In an offseason where teams across the league have been reluctant to spend big, the Mets have spent significant money on James McCann and Trevor May and clearly aren’t done yet.
Word is that the Mets’ offer to Bauer is enormous. They’re clearly serious about contending as quickly as possible.
