Mets sign left-handed reliever Jerry Blevins to minor-league deal

A prominent member of the last bullpen that Sandy Alderson constructed is on his way back to Flushing.

Left-handed specialist Jerry Blevins, a staple of the Mets’ relief corps from 2015-18, has signed a Minor League deal to return to the team, according to multiple sources. The contract will be worth $1.25 million if Blevins makes the Mets’ big league roster, per a source, and includes up to $750,000 in incentives.

The Mets have not commented on the deal as it is not yet official, but Blevins expressed his excitement on Twitter after the news broke.

Although a broken arm limited Blevins to five innings in his first year with the Mets, he rebounded to post a 2.87 ERA with 121 strikeouts over 91 innings from 2016-17.
