The New York Mets remain on the hunt for upgrades to their rotation after reportedly signing Justin Verlander.

The Mets are among a group of teams interested in signing star Japanese right-hander Kodai Senga, sources told MLB Network's Jon Morosi.

New York currently has a projected rotation of Verlander, Max Scherzer, Carlos Carrasco, Tylor Megill, and David Peterson.

The Toronto Blue Jays, Los Angeles Angels, and Boston Red Sox are also showing interest in Senga, adds Morosi.

Senga has been one of the offseason's most popular free agents. The New York Yankees, San Francisco Giants, Seattle Mariners, and Los Angeles Dodgers have also shown varying degrees of interest.

The 29-year-old had a career season in 2022, posting a 1.94 ERA and 156 strikeouts across 144 innings for the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks.
