According to SNY’s Kevin Burkhardt via twitter, the Mets have signed Chris Capuano to a 1-year deal.
Capuano went 4-4, with 54 K’s, and a 3.95 ERA for the Brewers in 2010.
Recently, Rising Apple discussed Chris Capuano as an option for the Mets in the back of the rotation. The Mets, as we all know, need someone to help out in the back of the roation especially as Johan Santana continues his rehab from surgery.
To me, any signing is a good signing for the Mets at this point. It’s that part of the offseason where players begin to lower their demands on contracts, and accept low-based salary to sign with a major league team.
The Mets need to do everything in their power to try and get some roster depth. Whether they decided to go with the back of the rotation, or try to get at least one veteran reliever from the free-agent market, any signing is a positive signing.
