Verrett, 26, was the Mets’ primary swingman for most of last season, bouncing between the rotation and bullpen. He posted a 5.20 ERA overall in 12 starts and 23 relief appearances, with 66 strikeouts and 43 walks in 91 2/3 innings. Most of Verrett’s best work came in April; he went 3-0 with a 0.52 ERA that month, and 0-8 with a 6.30 ERA afterward.
In Baltimore, Verrett figures to provide depth for a bullpen that led the American League with a 3.40 ERA last season. The Texas native is 4-10 with a 4.65 ERA overall in parts of two seasons with the Mets and Rangers.
