Joel Sherman of the New York Post hears that the Mets are open to bringing back the oft-injured Chris Young on a minor league contract.
Young, 32, posted a 1.88 ERA and 22/11 K/BB ratio over four starts with New York this season before undergoing surgery in mid-May to repair a torn anterior capsule in his right shoulder.
Young’s agent told Corey Brock of MLB.com earlier today that he should be ready in time for spring training. The veteran right-hander has been limited to just 22 starts over the past three seasons due to his historically troubled shoulder, so it’s pretty much impossible to count on him for anything, but no harm in a spring training invite.
