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. Nov 19 - 4:26 PM

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.
Aug 6 - 2:15 PM

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.
Jul 23 - 5:00 PM

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.
Jul 5 - 2:19 PM

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.
Jun 13 - 2:54 PM

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.
Jun 11 - 4:04 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.
May 21 - 4:34 PM

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.
Apr 21 - 8:40 AM

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.
Apr 20 - 3:00 PM

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.
Apr 19 - 3:10 PM

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.
Feb 11 - 11:01 AM

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.
