Betances, 32, signed a $ 10 million one-year contract with the Mets last December after spending the first eight seasons of his career in the Bronx with the Yankees. His $ 6 million option escalated to $ 6.8 million when he recorded 40 games on Mets’ active roster last season.
After being promoted to MLB’s Relief Pitching Crop Cream (2.22 ERA / 2.26 FIP, 14.63 strikeouts per 9 innings in 349 appearances from 2014 to 2018), Betances has a right shoulder clash and the part that follows. Missed almost all of the 2019 season with a reliever of his Achilles tendon in September of that season.
One year contract with that time-Carlos BeltranThe led Mets looked like a medium-risk / high-paying deal that could have been a New York coup. Betances went out six times in a row without allowing him to run from August 4th to August 18th, but never found the rhythm completely (7.71 ERA in 15 appearances).
Perhaps with the injuries behind him that have hindered him over the past few seasons (lateral pterygoid tension landed Betances on the 10-day injury list on August 30), the Mets certainly did their bullpen keycog. I want to return to the form from.
