Mets among teams watching Hanrahan
The Mets planned to send scouts to watch reliever Joel Hanrahan throw a bullpen session Friday in Texas, general manager Sandy Alderson told season ticketholders at an event Thursday evening.
Hanrahan, 32, is coming off surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon in his right arm. He posted a 9.82 ERA in nine appearances for the Red Sox prior to his injury last season, but over the two previous seasons collected 76 saves with a 2.24 ERA for the Pirates.
The Mets recently signed Kyle Farnsworth to a Minor League deal, and already have Bobby Parnell at closer. But they are looking for veteran depth to compliment the young arms in their relief corps.
