Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Mets are taking a look at free agent infielder Ryan Goins.
Goins was non-tendered by the Blue Jays earlier this month after batting .237/.286/.356 in 459 plate appearances in 2017. This report isn't going to excite Mets fans, but the 29-year-old has a strong reputation as a defender and is capable of playing all over the infield. Ideally he'd serve in a utility or bench role.

Blue Jays non-tendered INF Ryan Goins.

The 29-year-old defensive specialist spent five years with the Blue Jays but will now look to latch on with another team. He played 143 games with Toronto this year and limped to a .237/.286/.356 slash line with nine homers and 62 RBI in 459 plate appearances. The acquisition of Aledmys Diaz in a trade with the Cardinals made Goins expendable.

Goins has been getting regular playing time in the absence of Troy Tulowitzki (hamstring) and Josh Donaldson (calf), but the versatile 29-year-old holds a weak .208/.264/.396 batting line in 20 games.

This was Goins' first homer of the season and supplied his first two RBI in the process. Having received just 20 at-bats to date, there is no fantasy intrigue here.
