The Mets are "forging ahead with a pursuit" of Senga, reports SNY's Andy Martino.

Senga, 29, is in the United States meeting with interested teams and will soon meet with the Mets. 

Martino notes that Mets GM Billy Eppler has extensive experience scouting in Japan, going back to his time with the Yankees. Martino adds that as the GM who signed Shohei Ohtani in Los Angeles, Eppler carries extra name recognition in that baseball community.

In 11 seasons in NPB in Japan, Senga has a 2.59 ERA and 1.11 WHIP with 1,252 strikeouts in 1,089 innings pitched. He had a 1.89 ERA and 1.04 WHIP with 159 strikeouts in 148 innings in 2022.
