Wilson Ramos is still under contract for one more season with the Mets, and the club has an option to bring him back for the 2021 season if they so choose. Meanwhile, Tomas Nido, who served as the backup catcher for most of 2019, is under team control through the 2021 season.

Still, the Mets could upgrade their catching depth by adding a player like Chirinos. who has eight seasons at the big league level with the Rays, Rangers, and Astros. A career .234.,329/.439 hitter, Chirinos hit .238/.347/.443 in 114 games this past season for the Astros.
