Tim Redding Offered Contract By Mets

Several media reports today state that the New York Mets have offered free agent pitcher Tim Redding a contract. Redding was 10-11 with a 4.95 ERA for the Washington Nationals last season. Redding is a 30 year old right-hander who was non-tendered by the Nationals after last season.

I have to believe that Omar Minaya offered him a one year deal, the thought being that he could compete for the fifth spot in the rotation. Hopefully, he’ll accept a minor league contract. If he doesn’t make the majors he could keep working in Buffalo at Triple-A and come up if a spot start is needed. This is another guy that I’d have to think would have more value to another team. He could certainly take a spot in the rotation of a smaller market team.

  1. Dave, this actually a pretty solid move, there is little downside, and anyone that can pitch almost 500 baseball in washington and eat up innings deserves a look.


    1. There are a bunch of guys out there that they could take a shot at to compete for the rotation. Freddy Garcia and Mark Prior are still free. So Tim Redding is fine, but I’m not too concerned about whether they finalize the deal with him or not.
