Mets likely to stay inside for LH backup OF

Multiple scouts tell ESPNNewYork.com the Mets have not been searching for a lefty-hitting backup outfielder, signaling Adam Loewen or Mike Baxter likely will make the Opening Day roster. Part of the issue, the sources said, is that Mets officials privately know the team has too many deficiencies, so trying to upgrade in that role doesn't make much sense.
