What The New York Mets Should Do This Offseason

Blevins was acquired by the Mets from the Nationals for outfielder Matt den-Dekker last winter, but didn’t pitch much for them after he fractured his arm in April. However, Blevins would have assumed a key role for the New York as a late-inning lefty, something the Mets lacked in 2015. They tried with Alex Torres and Eric O’Flaherty, but neither worked out as expected. Hence, coming off an injury plagued season the Mets should be able to re-sign Blevins on a one-year contract for cheap, and it could pay dividends for their bullpen next season. Let’s say Blevins’ deal is $2.5 million, which would bring the Mets’ payroll to $96.5 million.
