ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Mets met with free-agent shortstop Jhonny Peralta during the GM Meetings, a team source confirmed.

Peralta served a 50-game suspension related to Biogenesis this past season.

The Mets want to add a shortstop from outside the organization. With Stephen Drew expected to be outside their price range, Peralta figures to be the top target in a limited pool of candidates at the position.
