Joel Sherman of the New York Post says that the Mets are open to bringing back right-hander Chris Young on a minor league contract.
Young, 32, posted a 1.88 ERA and 22/11 K/BB ratio over four starts with the Mets last season before undergoing surgery in May to repair a torn anterior capsule in his right shoulder and missing the rest of the season.
Young’s agent ran into Corey Brock of MLB.com today and told him that he should be ready in time for spring training. Young has made just 22 starts over the past three seasons and it’s become increasingly difficult to rely on him for anything.
That said, in those four starts last season he looked absolutely dominant.
