After two minor le ague pacts with the Padres and Rangers that amounted to nothing, Jerad Eickhoff
Despite an enormous amount of potential, Eickhoff pitched to a 4.15 ERA over 440 major league innings. Respectable, but not mind-blowing by any means. To the chagrin of both Eickhoff and the Phillies, he dealt with numerous amount of injuries, including a bad bout with carpal tunnel syndrome. After throwing less than six innings in 2018, he posted a 5.71 ERA in 2019 and didn’t pitch at all in 2011.
For the Mets, this is a low-risk depth move and they’ll be heavily rewarded should Eickhoff have something left in the tank. He will make $1.25M if he reaches the Majors.
