NEW YORK (AP) — A person familiar with the negotiations says right-hander Chris Young has agreed to a contract with the New York Mets, pending a physical.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Monday because the deal had not yet been announced.

San Diego declined its $8.5 million option on Young, sidelined most of the season with a strained right shoulder. It was his third significant injury in as many seasons.

He made four starts all year, three from Sept. 18 on, and wound up 2-0 with an 0.90 ERA. Young is 13-12 with a 4.13 ERA in 36 starts in the last three seasons.

Taking a low-key approach under new general manager Sandy Alderson, the Mets have added free agents such as left-hander Chris Capuano and catcher Ronny Paulino.
