Source: Mets eyeing Young Jr.

By Adam Rubin

The Mets have expressed interest in Colorado Rockies outfielder/second baseman Eric Young Jr., a major league source told ESPNNewYork.com.

Sending Justin Turner to Colorado might get the potential deal done, the source added.

The Mets also continue to have dialogue with the Rockies about Jon Niese.

Young, 26, hit .247 with no homers and 27 steals in 198 at-bats last season. He is the son of former major leaguer Eric Young Sr. and hails from Piscataway, N.J.
