Mets add reliever in Anthony Swarzak

The Mets have bolstered their bullpen.

After losing out on a few late inning options, the Mets have finally added to their team with Anthony Swarzak. According to Marc Carig of Newsday the deal between Swarzak and the Mets is for two years and $14 million.

The well traveled 32-year-old spent time with the White Sox and Brewers last year finishing with a 2.33 ERA across 77 1/3 innings of work. He is expected to work as a setup man for the Mets.

Swarzak has bounced around the majors since arriving with the Twins in 2009. In eight seasons he has only posted a sub 4 ERA three times. The Mets are making a bit of a gamble here that Swarzak’s 2017 season is not a fluke.

Swarzak signed with the Whtie Sox for $900,000 last season and has made $4.125 million in his big league career so this is a nice pay increase for him.
