According to multiple reports, Justin Verlander is signing with the New York Mets.

ESPN's Jeff Passan is reporting that the deal is for 2-years $86 million with a third year vesting option.

The Mets lost Jacob deGrom to the Texas Rangers over the weekend, so brining in Verlander to replace him makes a lot of sense for New York. Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander will make a scary one two punch for the Mets.

Now that the Verlander signing is official, the Astros can add some more pieces to the roster. The Astros are rumored to have interest in signing another outfielder, or free agent catcher Willson Contreras.
