Mets scouts watched free agent RHP Joel Hanrahan throw a light bullpen session in Texas on Friday (Carig, Feb. 7).
The session was intended to gauge Hanrahan’s progress in his recovery from surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon muscle, and Hanrahan’s agents intend to showcase him for multiple clubs in early March. He is expected to be fully recovered by May.
Hanrahan, 32, went 0-1 with a 9.82 ERA in only nine games for the Red Sox in 2013.
He saved 76 games for the Pirates between 2011 and 2012, allowing just 96 hits, 52 walks and nine home runs in 128 innings.
