A.J. Pollock deal with Dodgers

Pollock, who spent his first seven big league seasons in Arizona, can opt out of the deal after three years, but he will earn $55 million if he stays for four years or $60 million if he exercises a fifth-year player option, according to Rosenthal. There’s a $5 million buyout for the fifth year, ESPN’s Buster Olney reported.

Mets have been in touch with free agent CF A.J. Pollock

Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen said his big move to land Robinson Cano and Edwin Diaz wasn’t the last he would make. His agressive style this offseason will continue, and free-agent CF A.J. Pollock is a name he has shown interest in.

Van Wagenen said he believes Pollock could be a good fit for the Mets, and he has been in touch with Pollock’s agent

According to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale, Pollock is looking for a five-year deal worth around $80 million—similar to what the Brewers gave Lorenzo Cain. Pollock and his team could be selling themselves high as it is the start of free agency to see what teams will bite the most.

All right, who wants to tell Brodie Van Wagenen why this isn’t a particularly good idea?
