Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, New York works right-handed Carlos Carrasco Expressing his excitement to join this team after last week’s trade from Cleveland, introduced himself to the fan base and echoed the sky-high goals he had expressed Francisco Lindor on Monday.

A look at the 33-year-old stat line would require everyone to sell at Carrasco (3.57 ERA / 3.30 FIP, 10.58 strikeouts / 2.20 walks per nine innings, 13.0 fWAR since 2017), but Cookie wasn’t just on his own on Tuesday. Zoom in to talk.

During his press conference, the 12-year-old MLB veteran made his pitch for the Mets to include two former teammates in the team’s still-deficient rotation.

“I would really be happy to see [Trevor Bauer or Corey Kluber] In this affair. I spent a lot of time together [Mike Clevinger]”Bauer, Kluber, a lot of those peers,” Carrasco said. “I’m so happy to see one of those two guys in a Mets uniform […] They are really good pitchers. “

Bauer, 29, is without question the highest-profile starter in the open market. And that’s all.

Since the beginning of 2018, Bauer’s 11.6 fWAR qualified MLB ranks sixth among the pitcher. His exploits last season (1.73 ERA / 2.88 FIP, 100 K, 17 BB starts in 11) netted him in the 2020 National League Sai Young His well-publicized understanding on the ceremonial aspect of awards and pitching is almost unmatched.

The monetary costs and the off-field stuff that comes with the Bauer signature should not be understood, but his addition would certainly make the Mets a better team.

The 34-year-old Kluber took a drastically different path to this current offshin. A two-time AL Cy Young Award winner (2014 and 2017), Kleber had the most recent full season in 2018 (2.89 ERA / 3.12 fip, 1.42 walks per nine, 5.5 fWAR starting 32).

Since then, Kluber started with only eight injuries (broken cell, oblique in 20127, shoulder tear in 2020).

The right-hander is scheduled to hold a showcase session for interested teams in Florida on Wednesday. The Mets are expected to be among the teams in attendance.

Let’s see if Cookie Carrasco’s acceptance sound follows in the Mets’ free-agent signing.
