According to SB Nation, the New York Mets are looking to add free agent pitcher Doug Fister. This news comes after the team suspended starting pitcher Matt Harvey.

On Sunday morning, the team suspended Harvey for violating team rules. They called up Adam Wilk to get a spot-start after having his contract purchased from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Despite Harvey’s suspension, there’s many believe that Harvey has not been right since last season prior to his season-ending injury. Also, the Mets rotation has been ruined by injuries.

Fister recently worked out for four teams — and the Mets were one of those teams. The free agent could sign with a team soon.

In addition to the Mets rotation injuries, Robert Gsellman has also struggled. Their rotation depth is very thin.

Rafael Montero is presently the No. 5 starter for the team. However, if they did sign Fister, he’ll be the team’s fifth starter.

The 33-year-old has been an MLB pitcher for eight seasons. He has pitched for the Seattle Mariners, Detroit Tigers, Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros.

If he does sign with the Mets, he’ll be his third season in the National League, both seasons with the Nationals. He is 21-13 with a 3.10 ERA in 267 innings in the NL.

With six seasons in the American League, he has a 56-63 record with a 3.73 ERA in 999 innings.
