Mets Rumors: Rodney goes to Seattle, Mets still in hunt for late inning reliever
Fernando Rodney, who had interest from the Mets, signed a two-year, $14 million deal Thursday to become closer for the Seattle Mariners.
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN NY, the Mets remain in the market for a late-inning reliever. The remaining free agents include Kevin Gregg, Ryan Madson and Joel Hanrahan.
The Mets have hope of landing the late-inning arm on a minor-league deal, but they are not guaranteeing it.
According to Rubin, Sandy Alderson told season-ticket holders Thursday night that they would have scouts watching Hanrahan throw, although the reliever will not be ready until May. He underwent Tommy John surgery last May.
