The Arizona Diamondbacks have signed Jon Garland. There goes another Met back-up plan.
The deal is for one year with an option for 2010. It is unknown for how much. AZCentral is reporting it could be in the $6 million to $8 million range since the D’backs only had $7 million left to spend this offseason.
He should’ve signed the one year, $12 million arbitration deal with the Anaheim Angels.
The Mets need to get cracking on getting a starter already. Whoever it is!
