The Mets sign Chris Young

MetsGoon:

Now this is the signing we have all come to know, expect and loathe from Sandy Alderson since he took over as GM of our beloved Mets.

Why not add another high strikeout guy to the team that led the league in strikeouts last year.

Chris Young, the pitcher, was a failed experiment for the most part, so I guess they figured why not try the other Chris Young.

I don’t believe this guy is an upgrade over Eric Young Jr. in the outfield and until I see an actual amount that he was given for his contract I will hold back any further ranting.

Jon Heyman reports that the Mets have signed outfielder Chris Young to a one-year contract, pending a physical. The deal is for $7.2 million.

This makes some sense. Young is coming off of two straight blah seasons (in 2013 he hit .200/.280/.379 with 12 homers and 10 steals). But he does have a good mix of power and speed, and if he can raise that batting average up even as high as .250 he’s not a bad value as an every day center fielder.
