The deal is official. Tim Redding the your newest New York Met.
Jon Heyman was right, as the deal was worth $2.25 million, but Redding has the chance to earn up to $3 million, according to Adam Rubin.
Redding went 10-11 with the lowly Nationals last season. Against the Braves, Phillies and Marlins, he posted a 6-5 record. 3-1 against Philadelphia, 1-1 against Atlanta and 2-3 against Florida.
The Mets won two and lost one to Redding.
Jon Niese may not even factor into the rotation now, but he'll be the perfect guy to come up if a pitcher gets injured. You never know, though, with a strong spring training, anything is possible.
