Mets Closing In On Deal With Chris Young

The Mets are closing in on a deal with Chris Young, according to Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com. The deal is pending a physical. That could be more than a formality for Young, who missed most of last season with a shoulder strain before pitching in September.

Reports earlier in the month suggested Young was nearing a decision and willing to accept less than $2MM in guaranteed money. A deal with the Mets would reunite him with two of his former Padres bosses, current Mets execs Sandy Alderson and Paul DePodesta.

Has the potential to be a good signing.

This is a move they have to make, he’d be a perfect fit as long as he stays healthy. Right now, I’d say their rotation is ahead of only the Pirates, it’s that bad. A ton of unproven guys and Pelfrey is a 3-4 starter on a good team. Chris Young has the potential to be a solid #2 or so.
