The Mets are among the teams that have recently scouted free agent reliever Kevin Siegrist, according to the Bergen Record.
ESPN's Jerry Crasnick recently reported about 20 scouts watched Siegrist throw in Florida on Thursday, so it's likely the Mets were represented at that session. A once-dominant reliever, the 28-year-old owned a 4.81 ERA in 39 1/3 innings last year. If he showed anything at the showcase, a team could do worse than taking a shot on the southpaw on a minor league deal. Feb 17 - 7:05 PM

Free agent Kevin Siegrist threw for about 20 scouts in Florida on Thursday.

Considered one of the game's best lefty setup men a couple of years ago, Siegrist was given up on by both the Cardinals the Phillies in the latter stages of a 2017 season in which he posted a 4.81 ERA in 39 1/3 innings. He's still just 28, and he has a 3.04 ERA in 276 career relief appearances. Also, any team that signs him would have his arbitration rights for 2019. He'd seem to be well worth taking a chance on.

Kevin Siegrist has elected to become a free agent.

Siegrest came over from the Cardinals on waivers at the beginning of September. The southpaw was one of the best lefty relievers in baseball from 2013-2016, but struggled with St. Louis and the Phillies to a 4.98 ERA in 2017. Because of his previous success he should draw some interest, but is likely looking at a deal that will be incentive-laden.

Phillies claimed LHP Kevin Siegrist off of waivers from the Cardinals.

The 28-year-old left-hander has struggled to a 4.98 ERA and 1.60 WHIP across 34 1/3 innings this season, but was a standout in the Cardinals' bullpen the previous four seasons. It's a nice low-risk move for the Phillies as he's capable of being a nice bullpen piece.

Cardinals activated LHP Kevin Siegrist from the 10-day disabled list; designated him for assignment.

He'll get another shot with a new organization.
