The Mets' biggest catch of the Winter Meetings became official yesterday.
Frank Francisco is the team's new closer, after signing a two-year contract worth $12 million as part of the Mets' revitalized bullpen.
The 32-year-old Francisco will join Jon Rauch and Ramon Ramirez as the new bullpen additions. The Mets' other addition at the Winter Meetings was outfielder Andres Torres, who arrived from the Giants with Ramirez in a trade for Angel Pagan.
Francisco went 1-4 with a 3.55 ERA and 17 saves in 54 games for Toronto last season. He had a career-high 25 saves for Texas in 2009.
