Derek Lowe closing in on deal with Mets

According to a baseball source, The New York Mets appear to be closing in on a deal for free-agent pitcher Derek Lowe.

The potential deal is believed to be four years in length, or three years with a vesting option. The contract is estimated to be worth between $14 million-$16 million per season. Lowe just finished up a four year, $36 million deal with the Dodgers.

In 2008, Lowe was the Dodgers most consistent pitcher down the stretch and finished with a 3.24 ERA to go along with a 14-11 record with 211 innings pitched.
