Ken Davidoff of the New York Post reports that the door remains "slightly ajar" for Jose Valverde to join the Mets as their closer.

Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reported earlier this month that there was interest, and evidently the possibility remains. Valverde's market has obviously been slow to develop this offseason following an uneven 2012 campaign where he eventually lost his closer gig during the playoffs. While the veteran righty is probably miscast in the ninth inning, he's still a solid reliever.
