At least it’s something

Posted: December 17, 2009 in Mets

The Mets signed Japanese relief pitcher Ryota Igarashi tonight, according to multiple reports. I’ve never seen the guy pitch, but I’ve read he features a mid 90s fastball along with decent breaking stuff. Projects as a setup reliever, although I’m not sure if he’ll be the eighth inning guy or not. Also, looks like talks are really heating up with Jason Bay. If the Mets offer him a five-year deal, that might be enough to get it done. Still need starting pitching, and there aren’t a lot of attractive options out there. No real bonafide No. 2 starters available, so we’ll see what Omar comes up with.
