NY Mets Sign 2-Time All-Star To Bolster Rotation


With Kodai Senga still many weeks away from returning, Tylor Megill joining the IL, and an 0-4 start to the season, the New York Mets have added a little boost to their roster, signing a former two-time All-Star for the rotation. 

It's said to be a $2.5 million deal, and the noted Mets-killer now joins a nearly all-new look for 2024 Mets rotation, with Luis Severino, Adrian HouserSean Manaea and the only holdover, Jose Quintana.

Teheran has the second-most wins against the Mets (10) over the last decade, all from his time with the Atlanta Braves. From 2011-19, in 28 appearances, he stifled the New Yorkers to the tune of a 2.98 ERA.

The 12-year veteran was given a shot with the Baltimore Orioles during spring training, where he posted a 3.38 ERA in 13 innings, but it wasn't enough to crack their strong roster. 

Last season with the Milwaukee Brewers, Teheran appeared in 14 games and posted a 4.40 ERA along with a strong 1.13 WHIP.

The 33-year-old out of Colombia was an All-Star with the Atlanta Braves in 2014 and 2016, after finishing fifth in Rookie of the Year balloting in 2013.

In 247 starts, he has a career ERA of 3.83 along with a 1.22 WHIP with an ERA+ of 106, which is 6% better than the league average pitcher.
