Small victories, I guess.
The Mets announced the signing of right-handed pitcher Jon Rauch to a one-year deal.
Last season, Rauch pitched in 53 games with the Blue Jays, going 5-4 with 11 saves and a 4.85 ERA. The Louisville, KY native was drafted in 1999 by the White Sox. In eight major league seasons, which included stints with the White Sox, Expos/Nationals, and Diamondbacks, he has gone 39-31 with 58 saves and a 3.82 ERA.
As for the whole height thing, he's 6' 11".
