The New York Mets made a splash on Monday afternoon. Just days after losing Jacob deGrom to the Texas Rangers via free agency, the Mets added another Cy Young award winner to their starting rotation.

New York inked a deal with reigning AL Cy Young winner Justin Verlander. The deal is reportedly worth two years and $86 million.

Now with a big name added, Mets insider Anthony DiComo gave us a current look at how the starting rotation currently stacks up.

Max Scherzer still headlines the group and completes an intruiging reunion with Verlander. The two pitched together with the Detroit Tigers earlier in their careers.

The rest of the rotation is also rounded out by current starters under contract. That includes Carlos Carrasco, David Peterson and Tylor Megill. Chris Bassitt and Taijuan Walker are notable names who hit free agency this offseson. As DiComo points out, the team "is expected to remain involved" with other free-agent starting pitchers to add another arm.
