The New York Mets are already looking around for depth.

It’s still May, so the weapons market they’re scanning is a direct result of the injuries.

In fact, the Mets are currently without their two best starters, Jacob DeGrom and Max Scherzer, who will be out until at least July.

DeGrom fell down with a pressure response in his right scapula during spring training, when Sherza was injured this week.

Pitching against the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday, he called the coach and reported pain in his left side.

An MRI on Thursday confirmed a diagonal strain, and he will be out of action for the next 6-8 weeks.

That timeline is actually the same as Degrom’s, because both Harrels could be back around the All-Star break, probably a little sooner.

Mets have been forced to look at pitching options

Mate, therefore, is evaluating the options.

“I missed it yesterday, but the Mets have signed Trevor Cahill to a small league contract. Sustainable veteran who had a pair of 200-inning seasons, albeit a decade ago. Last appeared for the Pirates last summer, going 1-5 with a 6.57 ERA in nine appearances. He offers the required rotation depth, ”Anthony Dicomo of wrote via Twitter.

Cahill was once the top prospect in the Oakland Athletics system.

He is 34 years old and had a poor performance in 2021, he offered experience and a new hand.

In his career, he has an 86-99 record with a 4.26 ERA in 1507.2 innings.

He has submitted 1,151 strikeouts.

At the moment, Chris Basit Mets de Facto ACE, and Carlos Carasco, Tyler Miguel, David Peterson, Taijuan Walker and Trevor Williams have to go ahead.
