Reid has a legit chance to pitch for the Mets in 2014

The Mets have claimed RHP Ryan Reid off of waivers from the Pirates. Reid, 28, a relief pitcher, appeared in seven games for the Pirates last season, making his big league debut. The 28-year-old posted a 1.64 ERA and 1.091 WHIP in 11 innings, including one save. In Triple-A Indy, Reid posted a 2.73 ERA and 1.197 WHIP over 59 1/3 innings last year.

Reid is a typical fastball-slider reliever. He tops out at 94mph but he typically is around 91-92 with his fastball. He also occasionally throws a changeup. He was drafted by the Rays in 2006 but still regains his rookie status next year.

Reid will go to Spring Training trying to earn a spot in the Mets bullpen. He has very strong minor league numbers so he can earn a job on the Mets roster with a strong spring.
