New York Mets Sign Right-Handed Pitcher Following WBC Stint

The New York Mets have recently added Bubby Rossman, a right-handed pitcher, to their minor league roster.

Rossman, who played in several independent leagues after being released by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2016, impressed as part of Team Israel in the World Baseball Classic with a fastball that reaches 100 mph and a slider that hits 90.

In 2022, he made his way back to affiliated baseball with the Philadelphia Phillies and put up a decent 4.11 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and 83 strikeouts in 70 innings, including 44 appearances and 14 starts in the upper minor leagues.

Now, the 30-year-old hurler has a chance to make the Mets' opening bullpen for the season, due to injuries plaguing the bullpen.

Rossman is a depth addition to the Mets and should compete with other high-velocity options to add depth to their roster following an injury to Edwin Diaz.

It should be interesting to see what Rossman can bring to the team, especially given his unique journey to the MLB.
