I spoke to a Mets source today who told me Rodriguez is going to be more or less a salary dump for the team. He has a $17.5 million vesting option for next season which, the source told me, the Mets will probably need to pick up most or all of that option in order to move him.
As far as what he would cost in return I was told probably nothing more than a mid-level prospect or two.
Rodriguez is still a good reliever and if he can get control of his fastball back, could become a solid reliever in the Rangers' bullpen if he's the guy they want.
