Via MLBTR (h/t RAB), we’ve learned that the Mets inquired on the results of Hideki Matsui’s physical. Obviously, this means the Mets could be interested in bringing in Matsui to play the field as he obviously can’t DH for them.
This development should make Matsui rather happy. It not only gives him the confidence that at least some team also thinks he can play the field, but it also gives him a tiny bit of leverage against the Yankees. Still, I don’t think any NL team will get near Hideki. Regardless of what he says, I don’t think he can play the field. I’d be very surprised if an NL team rolled the dice on Matsui.
