Tyler Clippard nearing deal with Diamondbacks

Reliever Tyler Clippard, acquired by the New York Mets last season, is close to signing with Arizona according to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick.

Jerry Crasnick ESPN Senior Writer 

Free agent reliever Tyler Clippard is getting close to a deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks, says a baseball source. Clippard struggled in September and in the postseason with the Mets. But he leads MLB relievers with 440 appearances since 2010, and he looks like another upgrade to an Arizona pitching staff that added starters Zack Greinke and Shelby Miller earlier this offseason.

Mets closer Jeurys Familia settles for $4.1M

The New York Mets and closer Jeurys Familia agreed to a one-year, $4.1-million deal on Wednesday, which allowed both parties to avoid arbitration.

It does not appear as if the Mets currently are engaged in any contract extension talks with their young players. Still, general manager Sandy Alderson said Wednesday about that topic coming up soon: "It's possible. When you're talking about long-term deals with younger players, it needs to be sort of a mutual interest in doing so. Typically we find out about that mutual interest a little bit later, closer to spring training, or even in spring training. We'll see if that happens."
