Mets sign Jason Vargas, source confirms

Another member from the Royals championship run is officially leaving Kansas City.

The Mets and left-handed starting pitcher Jason Vargas have agreed to terms on a two-year, $16 million contract that also includes $1.5 million each year in innings-based incentives, FanRag Sports is reporting.

The deal, which is pending a physical, includes a club option for 2020, an Major League Baseball source told ESPN's Jerry Crasnick.

Vargas, 35, who was an American League All-Star selection, went 2-7 with an 8.13 ERA in 11 starts from July 5 to September 5.

It was a Jekyll and Hyde year for Vargas. It was his first full season back from Tommy John surgery after he pitched just 12 effective innings in 2016 (2.25 ERA and 0.92 WHIP).

This will be the second time Vargas joins the Mets after a quick cup of coffee 11 years ago where he saw action in only two starts. Discounting those seasons, Vargas has averaged 188 innings per year since 2010.

Vargas was rumored to be in talks with the Mets on Thursday, and apparently things progressed quite quickly.

In his 12 seasons with the Royals, Mets, Marlins, Mariners and Angels, Vargas has a 85-81 record with a 4.17 ERA.

Vargas is not a top-of-the-rotation starter, but he provides valuable depth for a long season and helped the Royals reach the World Series in 2014 with a 3.52 ERA in three postseason starts. In his four seasons with the Royals, Vargas was 34-23 with a 3.88 ERA in 74 starts.
