Report: New York Mets sign RHP Julio Teheran

The New York Mets agreed to a deal with veteran right-handed pitcher Julio Teheran on Wednesday. The deal is for one year, $2.5 million, and includes up to $450,000 in bonuses, according to MLB.com.


Teheran has played for the Atlanta Braves, Los Angeles Angels, Detroit Tigers, and Milwaukee Brewers. He opted out of his minor league contract with the Baltimore Orioles after he didn’t make their roster on Opening Day. Last year with the Brewers, his first year in the majors after an extended absence, he went 3-5 with a 4.40 ERA in 11 starts and three relief appearances. In 12 seasons in the majors, he is 81-82 with a 3.83 ERA and is a two-time All-Star.


Julio will join a rotation with Jose Quintana, Luis Severino, Sean Manaea, and Adrian Houser. Adding Teheran will provide some much-needed help and depth to the rotation as they are dealing with injuries. Kodai Senga and Tylor Megill are out with shoulder strains, Max Kranick is rehabbing a hamstring strain, and David Peterson is recovering from hip surgery. Adding Teheran means the Mets won’t rely heavily on their bullpen.


Teheran will be a big help to the Mets and could help them turn things around as have started the season 0-4. He could make his first start for the Mets on Monday against the Braves.
