Last night, the Mets signed right-handed reliever Jorge López to a one-year, $2 million contract, per Jeff Passan of ESPN. The Mets have been scouting out pitching all offseason long. Pitching is without a doubt the biggest area of need for the Mets, Jorge López will add to a solid bullpen that will likely strengthen as the offseason progresses.


López, 30, pitched for three teams last season and with a combined 5.13 ERA. However, he is not far off from his 2022 season, in which he pitched to an outstanding 2.53 ERA. His phenomenal 2022 season earned him an all-star selection as well.


The Mets have been doing their due diligence to bring in the pitching in which they lost at the trade deadline, as well as free agents. López is a solid pickup for a bullpen that will only get better from here with the addition of all-star closer, Edwin Díaz. López and the Mets will both work to replicate his 2022 season.
