Buzz: Mets May Look to Andy Sonnanstine as a Starter

According to Buster Olney of, the Mets may be interested in acquiring Andy Sonnanstine and making him a starting pitcher.

…I’m not sure I’d acquire him to be a starter…he has struggled recently as a starter, and at one point, the rays actually removed him from the rotation last year and sent him to the minors, and they had starting pitching problems of their own last year…I guess beggers can’t be choosers, but I don’t see Sonnanstine providing the boost this team needs in the starting rotation, especially since he’s worked only as a reliever since Spring Training…

Olney said the Mets contacted the Rays regarding Sonnanstine during the off-season.
