New York Mets Sign Tim Redding

Phil HoopsCorrespondent IJanuary 9, 2009

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.
