The New York Mets are one of many teams interested in right-hander Jake Odorizzi, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

However, the 30-year-old is more engaged with other suitors, Sherman adds. The Mets have reportedly shown a stronger interest in outfielder George Springer and right-hander Trevor Bauer.

Odorizzi has reportedly been linked to the Mets, Minnesota Twins, Toronto Blue Jays, and San Francisco Giants.

The 2019 All-Star spent the last three seasons with the Twins. He accepted Minnesota's $17.8-million qualifying offer last winter. He isn't tied to draft-pick compensation this offseason, while Bauer is.

Odorizzi was held to 13 2/3 innings last season due to multiple injuries, including a chest contusion and blister on his pitching hand. He posted a 6.59 ERA in four starts.

The Mets appear poised to be active in free agency under new owner Steve Cohen. The team already signed reliever Trevor May to a two-year, $15.5-million contract.
