Jason Vargas signs 2-year deal with Mets pending physical
Jason Vargas reportedly agrees to two-year contract with Mets
18 February, 2018, 07:11
All-Star pitcher Jason Vargas and the Mets agreed to a $16 million, two-year contract Friday, adding depth to a NY rotation that's been riddled by injuries the past two seasons.
The person spoke Friday on condition of anonymity because the deal was pending a physical and had not been announced. His first half was what made him one of the more talked about pitchers last season, but that poor second half coupled in with him being 35 years old is likely what resulted in teams being a bit skeptical of signing Vargy to a large contract.
In New York, Vargas will be reunited with pitching coach Dave Eiland, who was let go by the Royals after last season and joined the Mets. His club option for 2020 is also worth $8 million. New York's rotation was at one time extremely promising and had the potential to be one of the best in the league.
Vargas tied for the major-league lead with 18 wins in 2017 when he made the first All-Star appearance of his 12-year career. Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, Steven Matz, and Rafael Montero all had less than stellar 2017 seasons, and in order for the Mets to compete in 2018, the team needed stability in the middle of the rotation.
