Mets not in on Cuban shortstop Diaz

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Despite a need for an upgrade at shortstop, the Mets are not one of the teams pursuing Cuban shortstop Aledmys Diaz, an industry source told ESPNNewYork.com.

Agent Jaime Torres told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch he expects Diaz will sign a major-league deal within days.

Diaz worked out for the Cardinals on Wednesday.
