MLB free agency: Max Scherzer is about to sign with Mets, according to multiple reports
Right-handed freelancer starters Max Scherzer close to finalizing a deal with New York Mets reporting Jon Morosi of the MLB . Network. Morosi said it was a multi-year deal, and multiple reports put an offer of around $40 million a year.
This comes just a few days after the Mets stocked up next to the location player equal to the landing center operator Starling Marte and utility man Mark Cahna and Eduardo Escobar.
Scherzer, 37, will join his fifth team in 15 years in the majors. He came up with it Diamondbacks, was traded with Many tigers, signed as a free agent with National citizen and was traded with Dodgers previous season. During his career, he 190-97 with 3.16 ERA (134 ERA+), 1.08 WHIP and 3,020 strikes in 2,536 2/3 innings. The eight-time All-Star has won three Cy Youngs.
Last season, Scherzer finished third in NL Cy Young’s poll (finishing sixth in the top three and eighth in the top five) as he won 15-4 with a 2.46 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 236 wins attack versus 36 walks in 179 1/3 sets. . After the trade, the Dodgers won 11-0 from the start while he had a 1.98 ERA. In the knockout stages, he had an ERA of 2.16, even though the Dodgers lost two of his four starts.
Even at his age, the most likely path for Scherzer in 2022 is to once again swing like a trump card.
That means if the Mets do this and can get Jacob deGrom back to good health they’ll at least have two of the best pitchers in baseball in the same spin. At the very least, they have a pair of trump cards on top of the spin.
Even though the Mets lost Noah Syndergaard come Angel through free agent, Marcus Stroman is a current freelance agent and owner Steve Cohen was furious they didn’t get favorable terms Steven Matz in an attempt to reunite, they could still have a full rotation without anyone else adding, if the Scherzer deal is finalized. Behind deGrom and Scherzer there will be Carlos Carrasco, Taijuan Walker, Tylor Megill and David Peterson. Left side Joey Lucchesi Tommy John had surgery at the end of June last year and could provide depth at the end of the season.
