According to multiple reports, many listed in the MLBTR report below, the Mets have agreed to sign Brandon Lyon pending a physical. No word yet on the contract detatils but we do know it’s for one year.
“Lyon, 33, split the 2012 season between the Astros and Blue Jays. He posted a 3.10 ERA with 9.3 K/9, 3.0 BB/9 and a 37.5% ground ball rate in 61 innings of relief work. The 11-year veteran averaged 90.2 mph with his fastball. Lyon earned $5.5MM in 2012, but the terms of his deal with the Mets are not yet known.”
Alderson mentioned last week that if the deal with Lyon was completed then he was likely done with the pen. The Mets weakness last year has potential to become a strength this year but still has a lot of pitchers with question marks.
