PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Adding a starting pitcher may not have been a priority for the Mets, but they still decided they needed to add to their collection of arms.
The team has agreed to terms with lefty Jason Vargas on a two-year deal with an option, according to sources. Vargas, 35, went 18-11 with a 4.16 ERA last year with the Royals, and will be in the mix for a spot in the rotation, though he has experience as a reliever. 
Mets sign Jason Vargas to two-year deal
Vargas appeared in two games with the Mets in 2007 before being traded to the Marlins. He also worked with Mets pitching coach Dave Eiland for the past four seasons, and continues the Mets' strong working relationship with CAA/Roc Nation. Vargas joins a Mets team that hosts other CAA clients such as Yoenis Cespedes, Noah Syndergaard, Jacob deGrom and Todd Frazier, whom the Mets signed earlier this month.
