Mets Sign Brian Lawrence

At MLB Trade Rumors, they write about the Mets signing starting pitcher Brian Lawrence:

Troy E. Renck of the Denver Post spoke to Lawrence's agent, and he's signed with the Mets. Omar is just stockpiling arms.

Is it just me, or has there been a ton of interest in Brian Lawrence, dating back to this offseason? He was admittedly a decent innings eater for the Padres for four years, but he missed all of '06 and couldn't crack the Rockies' rotation.

Nonetheless, the Tigers have offered Lawrence a Triple A contract. I suppose there's nothing to lose here except a million bucks or so. The Tigers have received excellent work from their front three starters, but are rightfully concerned about Chad Durbin and Mike Maroth eating up 40% of the starts until Kenny Rogers returns.
