Mets Bullpen: Mets to sign reliever Brandon Lyon


The New York Mets were closing in on a deal with right-hander Brandon Lyon on Sunday, a major league source told ESPNNewYork.com.

Lyon would become the latest in a flurry of late signings to bolster the team's bullpen.

The Mets also recently have added veteran right-handers Scott Atchison and LaTroy Hawkins and left-hander Pedro Feliciano to minor league contracts.

Lyon, 33, went a combined 4-2 with a 3.10 ERA in 67 relief appearances last season with the Houston Astros and Toronto Blue Jays.

Lyon will also provide some insurance for Frank Francisco, who has closer experience...
