Jon Heyman reports that, after months of speculation, the Mets have signed right-hander Tim Redding to join their pitching staff.
The deal is reported to be worth somewhere in the ballpark of $2.25 million along with performance based incentives.
In 2008, Redding pitched very solidly with the Nationals going 10-11 along with a 4.95 ERA.
I think that Tim Redding would be very beneficial to the ballclub, as it would provide some depth to the pitching staff.
While Redding is a solid player, he is no top-tier starter, thus the Mets will still have to pursue others (Derek Lowe and Oliver Perez) to fill that void.
