Reliever Frank Francisco Signs Two-Year, $12M Deal With Mets

Busy evening for Mets as they also signed reliever Frank Francisco to a two-year deal, according to Ken Davidoff of Newsday.

The right-handed reliever will get $12 million dollars for two years according to reports.

Francisco went 1-4 with a 3.55 ERA with 17 saves in 54 games with the Blue Jays last season. He also allowed seven home runs, 18 walks and 49 hits in 50 2/3 innings.

So to recap, the Mets acquired Francisco, Jon Rauch, Ramon Ramirez and Andres Torres, and lose Angel Pagan.

If that $10-$15 million dollar spending budget was true, the Mets hot stove season will end after the Rule 5 Draft on Thursday.
