Mets Deal With Chris Young Is Complete

Skyscraping RHP Chris Young has apparently passed his physical because his deal with the Mets is now considered official. Jon Heyman says the deal is for $1.1 million guaranteed and Adam Rubin adds that the total value of the contract could reach $4.5 million after playing time incentives.

I wrote a bit about Young's pronounced home/road splits here, so go check that out for more info on the new guy.

With Mike Pelfrey pegged for the Opening Day start, the Mets rotation shapes up something like this:

Mike Pelfrey
R.A. Dickey
Jon Niese
Chris Capuano
Chris Young
Dillon Gee

This signing clearly hurts Gee's chances of making the team out of spring training. If Capuano and Young are both healthy I'd expect them to make the starting five when camp breaks in early April.
