Despite Maya working out at the Mets complex since August and even wearing Mets uniforms, today it was reported that Boston was the front runners for his services.
The Red Sox team president, in one report was said to believe that Maya would be signed by Boston soon ( source MLBTR).
However, Boston would use him as a reliever or start him in the minors and tonight Rod Bradford of WEEI reports that Maya may sign with a team where he could go immediately into the rotation (Mets fit that bill).
Every report I've seen, Maya would make a major league rotation immediately, although there are differing opinions on his success. I've seen him projected to be anything from a #3 to a #5 starter...
