Mets Sign RHP Josh Fogg

The Mets have signed 33 year old relief pitcher Josh Fogg to a minor league deal, according to Troy Renck of  Denver Post.

Fogg had a 3.74 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in 45.6 relief innings for the Rockies last season.

He also spent some time as a starter in the minors where he had a 5.80 ERA and 16/17 K/BB ratio in eight starts for AAA-Colorado Springs.

He’ll most likely compete for the fifth starters spot or bullpen job in the spring. That can’t be good.

He has been terrible as a starter and yet he chose the Mets because they told him he could compete for a rotation spot.

“The Mets’ rotation is pretty much up in the air, so it’s a good spot to compete for a job.”

His nickname is the “Dragon Slayer”.

I’m not sure if this ends the Mets pursuit of John Smoltz.
