More arms the Mets have shown early interest in

After writing an article about the Mets interest in Jake Odorizzi, it was reported by MMO’s Tim Ryder that the Mets have shown interest in three more arms for their rotation.

Mike Minor: the only arm that didn’t get an article on MetsJunkies is Mike Minor. The 32 year old lefty had a down year in 2020, pitching to a 5.52 ERA over 56.2 innings pitched. Minor was a deadline trade piece for the A’s, where he wasn’t able to improve his year. But, as I mentioned before, we have to look at the bigger picture. Mike Minor was a terrific and dependable starter before 2020. In 2019 he went 14-10 with a 3.59 ERA and a 144 ERA+ over 209 innings for the Rangers. Like Odorizzi, you sign Minor for his numbers before the 2020 season, as a back end guy.

We have mentioned the other two who the Mets expressed interest in and were both already part of an article on Metsjunkies: Charlie Morton and Corey Kluber.
