The Mets have signed right-handed relief pitcher Austin Adams to a one-year, major league contract, per Mark Feinsand. And Will Sammon adds that it’s a split, non-guaranteed contract.

The 32-year-old spent the 2023 season with the Diamondbacks and had a 5.71 ERA and a 3.72 FIP in 17.1 innings of work.

Adams made his major league debut with the Nationals back in 2017, but he only threw a total of 7.0 innings for them from then until he was traded to the Mariners early in the 2019 season. And following that season, which saw him throw 31.0 innings with Seattle and finish with a 3.94 ERA in total, he was traded to the Padres. Over the course of three seasons in San Diego, he only threw a total of 59.0 innings—52.2 of them in 2021—with a cumulative 3.97 ERA and a 3.98 FIP.

In recent weeks, we’ve been running down the list of free agent relief pitchers who could help the Mets next year, as the team needs plenty of help beyond Edwin Díaz and Brooks Raley.
