The New York Mets could still make a move for Stephen Drew, however a deal now appears unlikely, reports cbssports.
The Mets, who have already signed the likes of Curtis Granderson, Chris Young and Bartolo Colon this winter, had been expected to make a move for Drew, but any potential deal now hangs in the balance.
It's reported that the Mets' officials are divided over the value of the shortstop and would only consider a deal of up to two years.
Drew, who hit 13 home runs for the Red Sox last season, is now 30-years-old and could well be tempted by a move to the Mets.
However, if a deal for Drew is not completed, the Mets will head into the season with Ruben Tejada undertaking the shortstop position.
The Mets will be desperate for a successful season with new faces in the team, however Drew may not be part of the team.
