The New York Mets are interested in improving the team through free agency. They are reportedly interested in outfielder Cody Ross.

The New York Mets are interested in pursuing free-agent outfielder Cody Ross, according to a report by Mike Puma of the New York Post on Tuesday morning.

Citing multiple sources, Puma reports that the Mets are kicking the tires on the 31-year-old outfielder. Ross spent last season with the Boston Red Sox and is coming off consecutive seasons with one-year contracts. According to previous reports, Ross is seeking a multi-year deal and had been looking for something in the range of three years, $25 million.

Puma does not believe the Mets will go beyond two years with any free agent.

In addition to the Mets, the Seattle Mariners and New York Yankees are believed to be interested in Ross' services. However, both clubs have been linked to other free agents, with Seattle reportedly pursuing Josh Hamilton and the Yankees engaging in discussions with Scott Hairston.

Ross finished last season with a .267 batting average, 22 home runs and 81 RBI.
