Medina is 25, pitched 14 games in relief for the Mets last season, primarily a sinker-slider guy.
Added potential bullpen depth.
After previously serving as a starting pitcher in the Philidelphia Phillies system, Medina converted to a multi-inning relief role with the New York Mets in 2022. He split the season between the big leagues and Triple-A.
In 14 games for the Mets, Medina threw 23 2⁄3 innings with a 6.08 ERA and 4.04 FIP. In 18 games (two starts) with their Triple-A team in Syracuse, he worked 31 frames with a 4.65 ERA and 5.09 FIP.
Medina made an adjustment to his arsenal this past season, turning to his sinker as his primary fastball instead of his four-seamer.
The 25-year-old has no options remaining and appears likely to serve as a depth piece in Triple-A Nashville, where he could fill either a rotation or a bullpen spot.
