New York Mets Free Agency Rumors 2011: Ryan Theriot On Mets Radar

The New York Mets are one of the teams suspected to be interested in acquiring free agent middle infielder Ryan Theriot, reports Sports Illustrated's Jon Heyman.

Heyman tweeted on Thursday that the Mets, Tampa Bay Rays and Atlanta Braves are all "looking at" Theriot. The Denver Post's Troy Renck reported that the Colorado Rockies also have interest in Theriot.

Theriot was non-tendered by the St. Louis Cardinals after batting .271 with 47 RBI and just one home run in 442 at-bats. The 32-year old has played seven seasons in the MLB, batting .282 with 17 home runs and 229 RBI. During the 2008 season, Theriot finished eighth in the National League in hits (187), eighth in on-base percentage (.387) and sixth in batting average (.307).
