The Mets will welcome Elmer Dessens back to the fold as they signed him to a minor league contract today. He’ll be eligible to compete in Spring Training.
They also inked a deal with right-handed pitcher Clint Everts to a Major League contract. His numbers in the minors are quite impressive.
Everts, 25, went 8-1 with six saves and a 1.65 ERA between three minor league teams in the Washington Nationals system last season. He struck out 68 batters over 60 innings in 44 games.
The 6-2, 170-pounder was 3-0 with a 0.90 ERA (two earned runs/20.0 innings) in 13 games with Potomac (A) of the Carolina League; 3-1 with a 1.53 ERA (five earned runs/29.1 innings) in 20 contests with Harrisburg (AA) of the Eastern League; and 2-0 with a 3.38 ERA (four earned runs/10.2 innings) with Syracuse (AAA) of the International League in 2009.
The fifth overall pick of the 2002 First Year Player Draft is 32-39 with a 3.98 ERA in 191 minor league games, 76 starts.
The Mets keep adding to their bullpen, but they need to start making some deals to build their starting roster.
