A Mets official downplayed the team's interest in Bronson Arroyo, now suggesting a meeting may or may not take place with the free-agent pitcher.

The team insider characterized the Mets' actual interest in Arroyo as "not super high."

ESPNNewYork.com, relying on a source familiar with the contact between the parties, reported Saturday that Sandy Alderson had reached out to Arroyo's agent on Wednesday to try to set up a face-to-face meeting between Mets brass and Arroyo at the pitcher's Tampa, Fla., home this week or in Orlando, Fla., during next week's winter meetings.
