Shaun of the Mets

Shaun Marcum, 31, is getting a one-year deal with the Mets contingent on passing a physical. Marcum will join Johan Santana, Matt Harvey, Jonathon Niese and Dillon Gee in the Mets’ daunting rotation. The addition of Marcum also likely precludes the Mets from re-signing free-agent pitcher Chris Young.

The Mets had been the only team not to sign a free agent to a major league contract this winter.
