Mets Sign Pitcher Freddy Garcia
Freddy Garcia is a Met. The righthander agreed to a minor-league deal with the Mets tonight, the Daily News has learned. It’s believed he can earn as much as $8 million to $9 million if he makes the team and reaches all of his incentives.
Nice signing for the Mets, especially if Garcia returns to his pre-injury form.
It’s a minor league deal, but barring a major setback, he should easily make the team,
The deal only pays him $8-9 million if he reaches a number of incentives, so it’s a very solid play by Omar Minaya. I’m guessing that the guaranteed money is probably around $2-3 million dollars.
I don’t know how this impacts the Ben Sheets or the Oliver Perez situation, but it certainly gives the Mets a little more leverage in their negotiations.
