Mets Sign Kevin Mulvey To Minors Deal, Chris Young Hoping For Return To Amazins’
The New York Mets announced on Twitter, that they have signed former prospect RHP Kevin Mulvey to a minor league contract.
Mulvey, 26, last pitched in the Major Leagues with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2010 where he appeared in two games in relief. He has appeared in only ten big league games in his career going 0-3 with a 7.90 ERA.
Once considered a highly regarded prospect for the Mets, Mulvey was traded to the Twins along with Deolis Guerra, Carlos Gomez and Philip Humber, when the Mets traded for Johan Santana before the 2009 season.
Andy Martino of the Daily News, reports that a person who has been in ‘regular contact’ with free agent RHP Chris Young says he wants to return to the Mets, and that such a reunion ‘will happen.’
The oft-injured right-hander is feeling increasingly healthy, writes Martino and he has narrowed his choices down to either the Mets or Padres.
Young, 32, made just four starts for the Mets in 2011, but was impressive and posted a 1.88 ERA in 24 innings in his short stint before having surgery.
There are reports that he will only consider a major league deal, and therein lies the problem if those reports are true.
