The Mets signed reliever Matt Wise to a one-year contract today. He’s 32 and was 3-2 with one save and a 4.19 ERA in 56 appearances with Milwaukee last season.
Wise can pitch in the set-up, mop-up and long relief roles. Wise pitched in least two innings in six of those games while logging over 53 innings last year.
“Matt has had success in a variety of roles,â€™â€™ Mets general manager Omar Minaya said. “He adds a versatile arm to the bullpen.â€™â€™
He is 17-21 with a 4.18 ERA and two saves in 201 career games with the Angels and Milwaukee, numbers suggesting he’s not the bullpen’s answer.
