Agents generally do not disqualify teams at this early stage and limit the pool of bidders, so take it with a grain of salt. But the agent for free-agent Bronson Arroyo said the right-hander would be receptive to overtures from the Mets.

“Bronson is an East Coast guy and would definitely consider the Mets,” Terry Bross told the Post. “But we’re going to take our time with this.”

The Mets need to add two starting pitchers this offseason -- ideally one who can fit in the upper half of the rotation and eat innings.

Arroyo, who will turn 37 during spring training, has averaged 211 innings a season since 2005. In fact, his 1,895 2/3 innings since 2005 rank third in the majors, trailing only CC Sabathia (1,999 1/3) and Dan Haren (1,927 2/3).
