Mets close to signing reliever Brandon Lyon


The New York Mets and relief pitcher Brandon Lyon are close to reaching a deal. Lyon, 33, would assume a late inning role in the Mets bullpen.

Lyon spent last season with Houston and Toronto finishing with 3.10 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP over 61 innings of work.

The Mets have signed right handers Scott Atchison and LaTroy Hawkins this week. The addition of Lyon would seemingly finish their bullpen makeover.
