The New York Mets have notable decisions to make regarding their starting rotation this offseason. Starters Taijuan Walker, Jacob deGrom and Chris Bassitt are all free agents, potentially leaving the Mets short on pitching if they depart.

New York's front office has been busy putting some contingency plans in place, however. The franchise traded for two Miami Marlins arms on Friday and picked up another depth piece via waivers.

New York claimed righty William Woods off the Atlanta Braves' waivers. He had been designated for assignment earlier this week.

The 23-year-old righty made his MLB debut in 2022, tossing just two innings without giving up a run. He reached the majors after spending four years in Atlanta's minor league system, although he struggled at times and doesn't look like a finished product.

Woods has been hampered by various injuries recently as well, making him difficult for the Braves to rely on moving forward. Perhaps that will change once he gets a fresh start with the Mets, however.
