Mets Add Relief Pitcher and Catcher Early in Offseason

Marc Rovner, Attorney

East Rockaway, New York native and experienced attorney Marc Rovner has served as the general counsel and director of business development for the multimillion-dollar title insurance company BETA Abstract, LLC, since 1998. Beyond his work as an attorney, Marc Rovner is a passionate fan of the New York Mets.

The Mets missed the playoffs in 2017 for the first time in three seasons and finished with their lowest win total (70) since the 2003 season when they won only 66 games. In an effort to improve their roster, the team signed a pair of veterans in December. One of the Mets’ main goals during Major League Baseball’s winter meetings was to improve their bullpen depth, which they achieved by signing free agent Anthony Swarzak to a two-year, $14 million contract. The 32-year-old relief pitcher split the 2017 season between the Chicago White Sox and Milwaukee Brewers and posted a 2.33 earned run average to go along with 91 strikeouts in 77 and 1/3 innings.
New York also offered veteran catcher Jose Lobaton an opportunity to earn a roster spot through spring training. The 33-year-old switch-hitter will compete with Kevin Plawecki for the backup job behind Travis d’Arnaud. Lobaton has been in the league since 2009 and owns a career .218 batting average with 21 home runs and 103 runs batted in.
