Mets sign Tim Redding

January 9, 2009

The Mets have signed Tim Redding. It’s a One-year, 2.25 million deal.

Redding, who grew up in New York, has agreed in principle on a one-year, $2.25-million deal with the New York Mets, according to a major league source.

Redding, 30, won 10 games last season for the Nationals, including three victories over the world champion Phillies. Rockies’ general manager Dan O’Dowd wanted to add Redding for depth, but Jason Marquis became a priority once the Cubs agreed to take on Luis Vizcaino’s salary. Redding can make an additional $700,000 in incentives for starts and $500,000 for relief appearances. – Troy Renk/Denver Post

Redding will most likely compete with Niese and probably some future signings for the 5th spot in the rotation. Omar wanted a veteran to come in and compete for that 5th spot and Redding is just that. He’s not an ace, he’s not a number 2 or 3. He’s a decent veteran 5th starter and that’s something the Mets need.

Welcome to the Mets Tim.
