Yoenis Cespedes remains on the free agent market and he could still return to the New York Mets despite being offered a deal from the Washington Nationals.

According to Buster Olney at ESPN.com, the New York Mets remain in the running for Cespedes, as reports have the free agent considering a short term deal from the team. The Nationals have reportedly offered Cespedes a five year contract, while Olney reports that Mets are talking about offering a three-year deal with an opt out after one season. That would allow Cespedes to get back on the market next offseason if he wants.

The Mets would like to keep Cespedes, but also do not want to get tied down on a long term deal. Cespedes is reportedly looking for a deal around five years or six years, but could consider this offer with the opt out. Cespedes played for the Tigers and the Mets last season, putting up 35 home runs and 105 RBIs while helping the Mets get to the World Series.
