Scherzer to the Mets talk started on Saturday as New York was reportedly making deals with Starling Marte, Mark Canha and Eduardo Escobar. 最初は, a Scherzer deal was described as a long shot before talks apparently started to ramp up over the weekend.
By Sunday’s end it appeared feasible Scherzer was going to be with the Mets.
The 37-year-old righty has been one of the best pitchers in baseball. He started the 2021 season with the ワシントンナショナルズ and was later traded to the ロサンゼルス・ドジャース. に 30 total appearances, 彼がいた 15-4 とともに 2.46 ERAと 236 三振. He finished third in Cy Young voting.
New York could really use another solid arm in the rotation, especially to take the pressure off Jacob deGrom, who was shut down after 15 starts for the Mets last season.
It’s unclear whether New York will bring back Marcus Stroman and after deGrom and now Scherzer, the rotation is still a bit young. Taijuan Walker is 29 while Tylor Megill and David Peterson are 26. Scherzer will help in the rotation but it’s not the only thing the team needs.
