Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen made it clear on Monday that the team addressed its most pressing needs this offseason, but is still keeping his ear to the ground on any other potential moves.
That may include adding another major-league contract to the roster.
"I don't think we have any restrictions in what we can or can't do," he told reporters on Monday. "I think it's more about how we fit the guys on the roster we have. We're deep, we have more than 25 guys capable and deserving to break camp so I think it will be a fun competition of really talented players."
Yet Van Wagenen said signing another starting pitcher is not a pressing need for them at the moment.
The Mets current fifth man in the rotation is Jason Vargas and Van Wagenen expects it to stay that way heading into Spring Training.
"There are no plans to sign an additional starting pitcher right now," he told SNY's Andy Martino. "I think we'll make sure we keep an eye on it, evaluate our own players in camp. I'm excited to see some of the depth we have. If there are other pitchers that we feel fit our club going forward, we'll certainly talk to them, but at this point we're excited about who we got."
