Mets Intrigued By Pineiro

According to a team insider, the Mets are "particularly intrigued" by free agent righty Joel Pineiro, says Adam Rubin of The NY Daily News. The Mets are rumored to be looking to add an innings eater to their rotation, and Pineiro would fit that bill.

The 31-year-old led the big leagues with a 1.14 BB/9 this year, the lowest in four years by a pitcher who threw at least 200 innings according to Rubin. Pineiro's 60.5% ground ball rate also led the majors. He just finished up a two-year extension with St. Louis that paid him $7.5MM in 2009, though FanGraphs valued his performance at $21.5MM.
