Mets - Signed Alou
New York Mets - Signed OF Moises Alou to a 1-year contract; claimed P Jason Standridge; acquired P Adam Bostick and P Jason Vargas from the Florida Marlins for P Henry Owens and P Matthew Lindstrom.
The Alou deal is $8.5 million. I like it, though, as it’s only for one year. While Alou wasn’t the healthiest last year, he at least has a track record of not missing almost all of the season, unless a treadmill is involved. When we’re talking 40-year-old players, the difference between a 1-year and 2-year contract is big.
The pitcher moves are simply depth moves. Minor league relievers, even promising ones like Henry Owens, have very limited trade value and it usually comes down to which team wants to try it with which reliever. Bostick and Vargas add minor league depth to the Mets, further guaranteeing that a Jose Lima won’t appear for the Mets sometime down the road, which is a very good thing.
