METS ON THE VERGE OF SIGNING MR. LISA GUERRERO
Scott Erickson is ready to sign a minor league deal with the Metropolitans, and will vie for the 5th spot in the starting rotation. Erickson is coming off surgery on his right shoulder, but I guess The Duke saw a little somethin' somethin' during a workout two weeks ago in Florida.
It's not a bad signing. Erickson before the injury was a workhorse pitcher. He keeps the ball in play and with the new and improved defense this could work. If he's sound. It's a minor league deal he's signing so the risk is low.
Again it shows the low esteem that Mets coaches and front office have on Heilman, Griffiths, and Strange etc.
