Takahashi and the Mets failed to reach an agreement by the Nov. 5 extended negotiating deadline and the Mets were contractually required to make the versatile Japanese southpaw a free agent. The Mets are not permitted to re-sign Takahashi and use him in the majors before May 15, ensuring he will sign elsewhere.
A team official indicated Takahashi was looking for a three-year deal that paid $4 million to $5 million a season.
