The New York Mets have agreed to a one-year deal with right-hander Rick Porcello, reports The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.

Porcello's deal is pending a physical.

The 2016 American League Cy Young winner will earn $10 million, according to MLB Network's Jon Heyman, who also reports Porcello had multi-year offers but preferred a one-year deal.

Porcello joins a rotation in New York that is expected to include back-to-back NL Cy Young winner Jacob deGrom, the hard-throwing Noah Syndergaard, and right-handed hurler Marcus Stroman.

Steven Matz and Michael Wacha, who agreed to a one-year deal with the Mets earlier this week, are also options for next year's rotation.

Porcello struggled in 2019. The 30-year-old was 14-12 with a 5.52 ERA and 4.76 FIP in 174 1/3 innings for the Boston Red Sox.

During his Cy Young campaign in 2016, Porcello was a different pitcher. He was 22-4 with a 3.15 ERA in 223 innings pitched, including a 1.01 WHIP.

A right-hander out of Morristown, New Jersey, Porcello has been one of baseball's most durable starters since he debuted in 2009. He ranks ninth in innings pitched (2,037 1/3) during that time frame and has made at least 27 starts in every season of his 11-year career.
