Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that Jerry Blevins is seeking a three-year deal worth $5.5 million to $6 million per season.
In other words, he's probably close to as good as gone as far as the Mets are concerned. Blevins should have no problem finding a multi-year deal elsewhere. The 33-year-old thrived out of New York's bullpen in 2016, posting a 2.79 ERA and 52/15 K/BB ratio over 42 innings. Tue, Dec 6, 2016 03:52:00 PM

Ben Nicholson-Smith of reports that the Blue Jays are interested in left-handed reliever Jerry Blevins.

The Blue Jays are looking to alternative lefty arms for their bullpen after Brett Cecil signed a four-year, $30.5 million contract with the Cardinals. Blevins is in position to land a lucrative multi-year contract after posting a 2.79 ERA and 52/15 K/BB ratio over 42 innings this past season with the Mets. As Nicholson-Smith notes, only Aroldis Chapman had a higher K/9 among remaining free agent lefties.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York writes that the Mets expect Jerry Blevins to get a sizable multi-year offer elsewhere.

Blevins figures to do quite well for himself after posting a 2.79 ERA and 52/15 K/BB ratio over 42 innings this season. The 33-year-old saw most of his work against left-handed batters, but he also held right-handed batters in check in a limited sample. If Blevins departs via free agency, Josh Edgin and Josh Smoker are among the internal lefty reliever options for New York.

Jerry Blevins took a comebacker off his leg Thursday against the Astros and will be evaluated by the Mets' medical staff.

Trent Woodward ripped one up the middle but Blevins was able to pick it up and throw to first to end the ninth inning. It's unclear if Blevins will need X-rays. Until the Mets update his condition, consider him day-to-day.

Mets re-signed LHP Jerry Blevins to a one-year, $4 million contract.

Matt Yallof of MLB Network reported news of the deal, which includes $1 million worth of incentives. $4 million seems like a lot for a pitcher was limited to seven appearances this past season due to injury, but Tony Sipp just landed a three-year, $18 million deal with the Astros and Antonio Bastardo figures to get something similar. As always in this game, it pays to be left-handed. Blevins should be New York's primary left-handed specialist in 2016 assuming he's healthy.

Matt Yallof of MLB Network reports that that Mets have re-signed reliever Jerry Blevins to a one-year, $4 million contract.

He could make up to $1 million more with incentives. Blevins got off to a great start this past season before suffering a fracture in his arm on a comebacker in April and then reinjured the arm during a freak accident in August. If healthy, he'll be the primary left-handed specialist in New York's bullpen in 2016.

Matt Ehalt of the Bergen Record reports the Mets have interest in free agent Jerry Blevins.

The Mets had hoped Blevins would contribute to their bullpen in 2015, but a distal radius fracture of his left arm suffered in April -- and a re-fracture of the arm in August after a freak accident -- limited him to just seven appearances. Blevins is one of the better left-handed relievers in the game, and the Mets are assumed to be one of multiple teams interested in securing his services for 2016 and beyond.

Jerry Blevins re-injured the distal radius fracture in his left arm and needs season-ending surgery.

Blevins landed on the disabled list April 20 after getting hit on the arm by a comebacker and then re-fractured that arm Thursday morning when he tripped while stepping off a curb. The 31-year-old left-hander made only seven appearances this season for the Mets. He is due to become a free agent this winter.

Jerry Blevins (forearm) is scheduled for a follow-up X-ray next week.

The hope is that he'll get the green light to resume throwing at that time. Blevins has been sidelined since mid-April with a distal radius fracture of his left arm, but he could make an impact in the Mets' bullpen down the stretch.

Jerry Blevins (forearm) has yet to be cleared to resume a throwing program.

Blevins has been sidelined since mid-April with a distal radius fracture of his left arm. Obviously, a timetable for his return won't become cleared until he's throwing again.

Mets transferred LHP Jerry Blevins to the 60-day disabled list.

This was done merely as a procedural move to open a spot on the 40-man roster for the return of Kirk Nieuwenhuis. He isn't expected to rejoin the Mets until after the All-Star break.

Jerry Blevins (arm) has yet to resume throwing.

Blevins had a follow-up X-ray last week, but he's not completely healed yet. His absence appears likely to stretch into the second half. The southpaw suffered a distal radius fracture of his left arm when he was hit by a comebacker on April 19.
Thu, Jun 11, 2015 04:04:00 PM

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.

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.
