According to MLB Network insider Mark Feinsand, Gio Gonzalez is set to opt out of his deal with the New York Yankees if they don’t add him to the roster, which Feinsand says, the Yankees do not intend to do.
Gonzalez has struggle in his brief Yankees career. His ERA for the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders is 6.00. He’s surrendered 10 earned runs on 19 hits in 15 innings pitched.
Gonzales signed a one-year incentive laden contract with a $3 million base salary in March. His previous salary with the nationals was a one-year $10 million deal.
The Mets pitching staff has struggled so far this season posting the highest ERA in the National League. Even though they’ve had early season struggles, Mets starters Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard and Zach Wheeler should be solid, but Steven Matz is coming off a horrific start in which he got shelled for 8 runs (6 ER) without recording an out and Jason Vargas has been horrific in all of his starts this season.
