Report: Mets interested in Tyler Flowers

In the event the White Sox would retain A.J. Pierzynski, it's hard to see how the Sox could keep Tyler Flowers in the backup role. He's worthy of part-time duties, not barely-any-time duties, and the Sox have said as much.

They might not be the only team that thinks so, either. According to the New York Post:

The Mets could also go the trade route for a catcher, as the team seeks either a starter or, at minimum, a right-handed bat to pair with Josh Thole. White Sox backup Tyler Flowers is of some interest to the Mets, according to a source. But the White Sox also might not be in a hurry to deal a catcher with last year’s starter, A.J. Pierzynski, on the free-agent market.
