Mets Sign Marcum to a One-Year Deal!
The NY Mets signed veteran right-handed pitcher Sean Marcum to one-year deal on Thursday! Pending a physical, he will take Cy Young knuckleballer R.A. Dickey’s (who was traded to the Blue Jays) spot in the rotation! Marcum, 31, is a solid starter, compiling a 57-36 record in 149 starts and 174 appearances with a 3.76 ERA over his seven-year career w/ the Blue Jays and Brewers! On the flipside, he has dealt with injuries missing the entire 2009 season following Tommy John surgery, and missed two months last season with elbow soreness! Marcum will join Johan Santana, Matt Harvey, Jon Niese and Dillon Gee on the starting rotation! The Mets are also looking into acquiring 30-year old outfielder Michael Bourn!
