According to Michael Mayer, the Mets have signed Bradley Roney to a minor league deal. The 28 year old was the eight round pick for the Braves in 2014 and has spend 5 seasons in the Braves system. Roney reached AAA in 2016, but hasn’t been above AA since.
Over his minor league career Roney owns a 3.32 ERA over 206 innings pitched. In that span he has a 1.34 WHIP, mainly because of his 6.3 walks per nine. Roney does provide strikeout stuff as he has a career 12.7 strikeout per nine rate.
Roney made a couple appearances for the Diamondbacks in their spring training before being released on the 19th of March. Roney allowed one run on one hit over 3 innings, but walked 5 and struck out 2, showing his issues with control.
Roney has been slowed down due to injuries in his career which resulted in a drop in velo (from high 90s to mid 90s). According to sporttalksatl.com he still provides solid secondary stuff with his fastball. (2019 article)
Roney will be a place holder and will find a spot in the Mets minor league system.
