The Mets and left-handed pitcher Sean Manaea have agreed to a two-year, $28 million deal with an opt-out after the first year, according to a report from Jon Heyman of the Post.

The soon-to-be 32-year-old has been in the big leagues since 2016 and spent the vast majority of that time with the A’s. Over the course of six seasons in Oakland, he had a 3.86 ERA and a 3.96 FIP in a total of 727.0 innings. The A’s traded him to the Padres at the beginning of the 2022 season, and he went on to put up a 4.96 ERA and 4.53 FIP in 158.0 innings with San Diego that year before hitting free agency.

Last offseason, the Giants signed Manaea to a one-year deal, and San Francisco used him as a traditional starter, a starting pitcher who appeared after an opener, and as a traditional reliever. In total, he made 10 starts, 27 relief appearances, and threw 117.2 innings. He finished the season with a 4.44 ERA and a 3.90 FIP.

Presumably the Mets view Manaea as a part of their starting rotation, and he’d be joining at least four other pitchers—Kodai Senga, José Quintana, Luis Severino, and Adrian Houser—in it.
