Mets Sign Righty Kelvim Escobar to One-Year Deal

Boston Herald/Associated Press—New York—December 28, 2009

The New York Mets have signed right-hander Kelvim Escobar to a one-year contract.

The team announced the deal on Monday. He was expected to get $1.25 million.

Escobar, an 18-game winner in 2007, missed nearly all of the past two seasons with the Los Angeles Angels because of shoulder trouble. The 33-year-old Escobar has extensive relief experience from his days in Toronto. He came up with the Blue Jays in 1997 and saved 38 games in 2002.

Escobar was cleared a few weeks ago to pitch by Mets medical director Dr. David Altchek, of Hospital for Special Surgery, who performed shoulder surgery on Escobar in July 2008.
