Mets Reach Agreement On 2-Year Deal With Lefty Vargas
Zack Wheeler is vying for a spot in the starting rotation
18 February, 2018, 07:14
The new deal for former Kansas City Royals pitcher Jason Vargas is for two years and worth $16 million, which is pretty good considering his age and how badly he struggled throughout the second half of the 2017 season. That person also spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal was pending a physical and had not been announced.
Vargas, 35, went 18-11 with a 4.16 ERA in 2017 for the Royals after missing most of the previous two seasons recovering from Tommy John surgery.
New manager Mickey Callaway has expressed interest in using a six-man rotation at times.
Vargas tied for the major-league lead with 18 wins in 2017 when he made the first All-Star appearance of his 12-year career. He would join a gifted but fragile rotation that includes three other All-Stars in Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard and former ace Matt Harvey, who can become a free agent after this season. With Vargas, the Mets now have some added depth.
Vargas has been in the league since 2005 and pitched for the then-Florida Marlins, Mets, Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels before spending the last four seasons with the Kansas City Royals. Lynn and Cobb would have commanded longer contracts, but since both pitchers are only 30 years old, the Mets would have received a much better value for players who would be more likely to impact the team beyond the 2019 season than Vargas. The Mets aren't expected to make a ton of noise this year, but they've had a knack for posting a solid rotation in recent years and hopefully Vargas will impress in NY. Over the next two months, Vargas had a 7.20 ERA, but he won four starts in September.
During the postseason run in 2014, Jason Vargas had impressive showings in both the ALDS and ALCS (let's not talk about his World Series numbers) and really stepped into that second pitching role in the rotation.
