Eric SalomonContributor IFebruary 2, 2009

Several unconfirmed reports have revealed an agreement between the Mets and Oliver Perez on a new three-year contract.  Perez won his arbitration case and will make $12 million each year.,,, and ESPN Radio 1050 New York have all reported the signing, but the Mets have yet to confirm.

The 27-year old left hander was 10-7 last season with a 4.22 ERA.  At times he has had ace potential, and at other times, he has struggled mightily.  Perez rounds out the top four slots in the rotation.  Tim Redding, Jonathon Niese, and Freddy Garcia are all potential candidates for the fifth spot.

The deal is pending the results of a physical.
