The Mets have signed Josh Fogg to a minor-league deal, according to Troy Renck of the Denver Post.
Fogg, Renck writes, is “one of the coolest guys I have ever covered — think of Vince Vaughn in “Dodgeball.” Renck believes Fogg has a shot to make the Mets out of spring training, and might even compete for the fifth starter spot.
Unfortunately, that might be the best thing to be said about Fogg.
Last season with Colorado, Fogg pitched in 24 games, starting only one. In 45 2-3 innings, Fogg struck out 27 and walked 20. He posted a 3.74 ERA and 1.139 WHIP (surprised me).
He’s a career 5.03 ERA and 1.458 WHIP pitcher.
