AP source: Pitcher Anthony Swarzak reaches deal with Mets

Dec 13, 2017 - 6:04 PM LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — A person familiar with the contract tells The Associated Press that free-agent reliever Anthony Swarzak has reached a deal with the New York Mets. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday at the winter meetings because Swarzak still needed to complete a physical. Swarzak is set to get $14 million over two years. Swarzak was a combined 6-4 with two saves and a 2.33 ERA in 70 games last season for the Chicago White Sox and Milwaukee. The 32-year-old righty has pitched for five teams in the last four years, including Minnesota, Cleveland and the Yankees. The Mets went 70-92 and came to the meetings looking for relief help. Swarzak is 23-30 with a 4.22 ERA over eight seasons. He began his big league career in 2009 with the Twins and was a starter his first year, then began moving into a relief role.
