NEW YORK — Mets first baseman Dyson Wells says he’d like to become an MLB scout.
And that includes being one of the most respected personnel evaluators in the game.
Wells, 20, said in an interview Tuesday he thinks the Yankees, Red Sox and Phillies are the front-runners to get him.
But he didn’t say where he’d sign.
Well’s father, Brian Wells, also was a scout for the Phillies, Yankees and Mets from 1996 to 2001.
Brian Wells said Dyson, the nephew of former Mets manager Bobby Dyson Sr., is “a very intelligent kid.”
Dyson, whose father was a member of the New York Mets, said he’d be a good scout for both the Yankees and the Red Sox.
The Mets and Phillies have been pursuing him since the trade deadline.
Dyson said he was surprised he was not contacted by either team, and he had a “good conversation” with one of his teammates about it.
He said he wanted to become closer to his dad and wanted to learn more about the game of baseball.
“My dad is always talking about the sport, so I want to learn how to play the game,” Dyson told ESPN New York.
“I would like to work with the front office to make it a good fit.”
