The Mets, along with the Braves and Dodgers, are among six teams to show interest in infielder Jack Wilson, SI.com reported.

Assuming Jose Reyes departs, the Mets will need to have a player on the bench capable of spelling Ruben Tejada at shortstop, and no one currently on the roster fits that profile.

The righty-hitting Wilson also played 45 games at second base last season with Seattle, perhaps allowing him to be a complement/defensive replacement for lefty-hitting Daniel Murphy.
