The New York Mets filled another open rotation spot on Tuesday.
According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, the club agreed to a two-year, $26 million contract with veteran left-handed starting pitcher Jose Quintana. The deal is pending a physical.
Quintana posted a 2.93 ERA in 32 starts for the Pittsburgh Pirates and St. Louis Cardinals last season. He has a career ERA of 3.75 across 11 MLB seasons.
The 34-year-old will slide into the starting rotation behind Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander.
