New York Mets Sign Veteran Starter

The New York Mets have dipped into the free agent pool less than a week before Opening Day to add some more pitching depth.

The Mets have signed starter Dylan Bundy to a minor-league contract.

The 30-year-old had a very average season last year with the Minnesota Twins, compiling a 4.89 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, with 94 strikeouts across 140 innings and 29 starts.

The Twins opted not to bring him back and he's spent the entire winter in free agency, drawing little interest from teams.

Bundy gives the Mets yet another option for starting pitching depth, which, given their rotation's injury history, is not a bad idea. 

Entering his ninth MLB season, Bundy holds a 4.74 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, with 852 strikeouts over 910 innings and 190 appearances.

He's spent five seasons with the Baltimore Orioles, two with the Los Angeles Angels, and one with the Twins.

It's a low-risk move by the Mets.
