Mets | More on Michael Bourn

The New York Mets are considering signing free-agent OF Michael Bourn (Braves), and they are seeking a ruling that would allow them to keep their first-round pick if they were to sign Bourn. The Pittsburgh Pirates landed a top-10 pick in the draft only after their first-round pick the previous year did not sign, which pushed the Mets to No. 11 overall. Under Major League rules, the top 10 picks in the first round are protected for teams that wish to pursue the top free agents. Still, it's unclear if New York would be able to meet Bourn's asking price.
