Mets make official agreement with Justin Verlander

The Mets have replaced one Cy Young winner with another. After losing Jacob deGrom to the Rangers in free agency over the weekend, the Mets announced yesterday that they have signed Justin Verlander to a two-year deal with an option for 2025. According to Jon Heyman MLB Network and other journalists, the contract has a value of 86 million dollars. Verlander, 39, has continued to defy time, finishing the 2022 regular season as the all-MLB leader in ERA (1.75) through 28 starts for the Astros. The veteran right-hander continues to throw a fastball that approaches 100 mph and also led MLB in WHIP (0.83) and fewest hits per nine innings (6). After another terrific season, Verlander decided to try free agency and put his remaining $25 million, one-year contract with the Astros on the table. Verlander won for the first time in the World Series in Game 5 of the 2022 Fall Classic against the Phillies, allowing one run in five innings at Citizens Bank Park.
