SAN DIEGO -- If the Mets were to swing a deal with the Colorado Rockies for Dillon Gee, the Amazin's apparently would like to address left-handed relief in that swap. And the Mets are intrigued by Rex Brothers, a team insider said.

Brothers, who turns 27 on Dec. 18, went 4-6 with a 5.59 ERA in 74 relief appearances for Colorado last season. Lefty batters actually hit .309 against him in 2014, versus .271 against righty batters.

Brothers is eligible for arbitration for the first time this offseason, so his salary is due to begin rising.
