MLB Rumors: Insider Links Veteran Pitcher to NY Mets

The New York Mets have had themselves an extremely busy offseason, but they are still looking to beef up their bullpen before the start of the 2023 campaign. According to MLB insider Jon Heyman, they are currently one of the teams making a push to sign Zack Britton.

Britton is looking to bounce back from two rough seasons. In 2021, he was limited to 22 appearances and sported a 5.89 ERA during them. Last season was even worst, however, as injuries allowed him to only pitch in three games, where he had a 13.50 ERA. Needless to say, it has been a rough time for the veteran, but now he is trying to find a new home to rebound. Perhaps joining the other side of the NY rivalry can help.

It makes sense that the Mets are considering signing Britton, as he is a two-time All-Star who was effective as recently as the 2020 season. We will need to wait and see if they sign him from here.
