Done Deal – Mets Sign Tim Redding To $2.25 MM Contract
Meet the newest Met…
Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that the New York Mets have signed pitcher Tim Redding to a one year deal worth $2.25 million dollars that could be worth as much as $3.45 million based on appearances.
Redding, who grew up in New York, has agreed in principle on a one-year, $2.25-million deal with the New York Mets, according to a major league source.
Redding, 30, won 10 games last season for the Nationals, including three victories over the world champion Phillies. Rockies’ general manager Dan O’Dowd wanted to add Redding for depth, but Jason Marquis became a priority once the Cubs agreed to take on Luis Vizcaino’s salary. Redding can make an additional $700,000 in incentives for starts and $500,000 for relief appearances.
Like one of our commenters said, I don’t believe the Mets would pay that kind of money to Redding just to try out for a rotation spot. It looks like you could pencil him in to the rotation anywhere between 3 and 5… take your pick…
1. Johan Santana
2. Mike Pelfrey
3. John Maine (if healthy)
4. Tim Redding
5. Jon Niese
Bring on the Phillies…
