At 29 years old, he was non-tendered by the Arizona Diamondbacks after posting a 4.26 ERA in 54 appearances and 29 K’s and BB’s.

Seems the Mets are making sure they have enough pitchers. I guess with their track record, you can never have enough.
I wouldn’t put it past GM Sandy Alderson to get even more.
