Jerry Blevins (arm) could report to the Mets' complex in Port St. Lucie, Florida early next week.
Blevins hasn't shed his cast yet, but that should happen soon enough. There's no clear timetable for his return, but obviously his absence will stretch into June and perhaps July. The southpaw suffered a distal radius fracture of his left arm when he was hit by a comebacker on April 19. May 21 - 4:34 PM

Date:

Mets placed LHP Jerry Blevins on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 20, with a distal radius fracture of his left arm.

Blevins will wear a splint on his arm for the next six weeks before being re-evaluated. He'll still need time to rebuild arm strength, so it sounds like he'll miss at least the next two months. The southpaw suffered the injury when he was hit by a comebacker on Sunday. It's a tough blow, as he has retired all 15 batters he has faced so far this season.

Jerry Blevins will have a splint on his fractured left forearm for the next six weeks.

Blevins should be able to resume throwing once those six weeks are over, but then he'll need at least another two weeks to rebuild his arm strength. The left-handed reliever suffered a distal radius fracture Sunday when he got struck by a comebacker and can be ruled out until at least mid-June. He had rattled off seven scoreless appearances this season for the Mets.

X-rays have revealed that Jerry Blevins has a fractured left forearm.

Blevins suffered the injury when he was hit by a comebacker Sunday. It's a big blow to the Mets' bullpen that already lost lefty Josh Edgin for the season. A timetable for the reliever isn't known at this point, but obviously he's looking at an extended absence. Blevins is unscored upon in seven appearances this season.
Apr 19 - 3:33 PM

Jerry Blevins had to exit Sunday's game against the Marlins after being hit on the left wrist by a comebacker.

Blevins was able to recover and make the play, but he then walked off the field. It's possible the reliever will need X-rays, but the Mets should provide an update on his status shortly.

Mets acquired LHP Jerry Blevins from the Nationals for OF Matt den Dekker.

The Mets have now acquired two left-handed relievers in the last couple of hours -- Alex Torres from the Padres and now Blevins from Washington. Blevins had a 4.87 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 57 1/3 innings with the Nationals last season.
Mar 30 - 3:43 PM

Jerry Blevins won his arbitration hearing against the Nationals and will make a $2.4 million salary in 2015.

The Nationals offered $2.2 million to Blevins when arbitration figures were exchanged last month, so the two sides ended up going to a hearing over $200,000, a pittance in baseball terms. The 31-year-old southpaw posted a 4.87 ERA and 1.24 WHIP over 57 1/3 innings with Washington last season and can become a free agent after 2015.

Jerry Blevins requested $2.4 million and was offered $2.2 million from the Nationals when arbitration figures were exchanged.

With the two sides being so close, it seems incredibly likely that they'll be able to strike an accord in the $2.3 million range. He had a bit of a disappointing season in 2014, registering a 4.87 ERA and 1.24 WHIP over 57 1/3 innings.
Jan 16 - 10:34 PM

Jerry Blevins struck out three of the four Mets he faced to close out Thursday's win.

It'll be interesting to see how Matt Williams uses his two left-handed relievers, considering that neither Blevins nor Ross Detwiler is any sort of traditional specialist. The team probably should have kept Xavier Cedeno for that role just to remove any temptation Williams might have to use Blevins or Detwiler for one batter a night.

Nationals avoided arbitration with LHP Jerry Blevins by agreeing to a one-year, $1.675 million contract.

Acquired from the A's this winter via trade, Blevins has a nice 2.81 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in his last 153 2/3 innings.

Nationals acquired LHP Jerry Blevins from the Athletics for OF Billy Burns.

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish was first to report word of the swap and now it has been confirmed by Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan. Blevins, 30, fills the Nationals' need for a left-handed reliever. He has a superb 2.81 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in his last 153 2/3 innings. Burns is a 24-year-old outfielder with exciting speed, but he can't really be considered a prospect.

Mark Zuckerman of NatsInsider.com reports that Jerry Blevins is on the Nationals' radar as a left-handed relief option.

Zuckerman also mentions Justin Wilson, which had previously been reported. The Nationals are also in on J.P. Howell, Boone Logan, Scott Downs and Oliver Perez as they attempt to bolster their left-handed relief. Blevins is due a raise in arbitration after making $1.1 million in 2013.

Jerry Blevins has posted a spectacular 1.99 ERA and 0.66 WHIP in 22 appearances.

In addition, he's 3-0 and has posted an amazing 20/1 K/BB ratio over 22 2/3 frames. Owners in holds leagues should note that this veteran left-hander hasn't yet recorded one, but Blevins has proved over the last few years to be a decent middle reliever in AL-only leagues.

Athletics avoided arbitration with LHP Jerry Blevins by agreeing to a one-year contract.

The financial terms aren't available. Blevins, who was arbitration-eligible for the first time, has posted a 2.97 ERA over the last three seasons for the A's. He'll be used as a lefty specialist again in 2013.

Jerry Blevins was mighty impressive on Tuesday night, pitching out of a major jam to preserve a one-run victory over the Angels.

The A's entered the ninth inning with a 6-3 lead, but Grant Balfour allowed a pair of runs to score and left runners at first and third with nobody out. Blevins inherited the dicey situation, and immediately got Kendrys Morales to strike out on four pitches. He then got Howie Kendrick to hit into a game-ending double play. It was Blevins' first save of the season and only the second of his career.
