Blue Jays have gained right-handers Wilmer Font with Mets in return for cash, for announcements from both organizations. New York marked with a font for the task last Friday.
The Mets bought Font, 29, with Rays in exchange for 19 years of integrity Neraldo Catalina at the beginning of the season to add some depth to the besieged pitching staff. He made a few spots starting at the beginning of his time at the club, but he decided to play the role of a helper with uninspiring results. In 31 total innings as Met, Font logged 4.94 ERA with 24 strikes against 13 fights and two strokes. The font also served up to eight long balls in this short time with Mets.
Despite the lack of successes in Majors, Font maintains intriguing clubs throughout the league. He was sold from the Dodgers to A to Rays to Mets, and now Jays, even without being exposed to public layoffs. On average, it reaches 94 mph on the heater, which complements multiple breaks, and Font has experience as an opener, traditional starter and drug, so it is comfortable in different roles. The Jays will become the fifth team that will try to persuade the quality of the Font results since the opening of the 2018 campaign, And as a rebuilding club they can certainly afford a decent leash, if they see fit.
