The New York Mets and and former St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Michael Wacha are working on a deal that would bring the right-hander to Flushing, Queens. Wacha would fill the fifth slot in the rotation, however has had issues staying healthy in the past.
The deal is worth $3M for one year, however Wacha can earn up to $10M with incentives. The right-hander finished 2019 going 6-7 with a 4.76 ERA in 126.2 innings pitched while striking out 104 batters in 29 games pitched, 24 of which were starts.
This is a decent acquisition by BVW and the Mets, considering Wacha will only be 29 years of age going into the 2020 season.
