According to Buster Olney of ESPN, Adam Lind is among the first base options expected to be considered by the Mets.
The Mets don't appear fully-sold on Dominic Smith as their regular first baseman, so Lind would give the club some insurance at first base. It's worth noting that he also saw time in left field with the Nationals, though ideally he wouldn't be used out there much. The 34-year-old rebounded from a down 2016 season by hitting .303/.362/.513 with 14 homers over 301 plate appearances this past season. Mon, Nov 27, 2017 01:30:00 PM

Nationals announced first baseman Adam Lind's mutual option for 2018 was declined.

Exactly who declined the $5 million option is unclear at this point, but it made sense for Lind to move on to see if he can find a starting job against righties. He was great in his limited action for the Nationals, hitting .303/.362/.513 with 14 homers in 267 at-bats. Still, the team might not have wanted to pay him $5 million for 2018, given that Ryan Zimmerman had a healthy and productive 2017 and Lind is only useful at first base (he started 25 games in left field last season, but that didn't go so well).
