The New York Mets have dipped into the free agent market, signing former Blue Jays pitcher Shaun Marcum to a contract, according to Jon Heyman. The deal, pending a physical, will be for one year.

Last season, Marcum started 21 games for the Milwaukee Brewers, posting a 3.70 ERA, 4.10 FIP, 4.21 xFIP and 1.4 fWAR in 124 innings.

The 31-year-old right-hander will join a Mets rotation that includes Johan Santana, Jonathan Niese, Dillon Gee and Matt Harvey, with prospects Jenrry Mejia and Zack Wheeler waiting in the wings.

In his career, Marcum owns a 3.76 ERA, 4.24 FIP and 11.7 fWAR in 174 games for the Toronto Blue Jays and Milwaukee Brewers.

  4. has anyone told the mets how rebuilding works? or do they just want to suck forever?

  5. I keep hearing there is no such thing as a bad 1 year deal. Plus i like him as a pitcher, before the Jays got RA, i was hoping for a return for him.
