The Mets were reported to show interest in Pearce on Saturday, but MLB.com's Bill Chastain has gotten the impression that the Rays' price for dealing Pearce would be high. The Indians also have been linked to the veteran.
The 33-year-old Pearce, a right-handed batter, is hitting .309/.388/.520 with 10 home runs in 60 games this season. He's owed the rest of his $4.75 million salary and will become a free agent at season's end.
