The Mets have "significant interest" in signing free agent left-handed pitcher Rich Hill, reports Rob Bradford of WEEI.
Hill had a 3.03 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 38.2 innings (eight starts) for the Minnesota Twins in 2020, though he missed some time due to shoulder fatigue.
While Hill can be an asset when on the mound, injuries have limited him to just 505 innings pitched over the last six seasons -- an average of just 84 per year.
If signed by the Mets, Hill would almost certainly be guaranteed a spot in the rotation if healthy, which would give them a fourth known starter to go along with Jacob deGrom, Carlos Carrasco, and Marcus Stroman.
Other possibilities for the Mets' rotation include David Peterson and recently-acquired Joey Lucchesi.
