Blue Jays Interested in Signing Jerry Blevins

on

According to MLBTradeRumors.com, the Blue Jays, fresh after losing lefty Brett Cecil to a 4-year/$30.5 million deal to the St. Louis Cardinals, are interested in signing Mets’ free agent lefty Jerry Blevins.

From the article:

Blevins, who turned 33 in September, has spent the past two years with the Mets. A pair of fractures to his non-throwing arm cost him most of the 2015 season, but he rebounded quite nicely in 2016, returning to log a 2.79 ERA with 11.1 K/9, 3.2 BB/9 and a 45.8 percent ground-ball rate in 42 innings of work. The Mets used Blevins sparingly against right-handed hitters this past season, though he held his own against them quite well, yielding just a .182/.266/.345 slash line to opponents that held the platoon advantage.

Blevins is likely a goner with guys like Josh Smoker, Josh Edgin and others in the fold. The Mets would like to invest that money elsewhere, although I am sure they’d love to have him back. Only time will tell.
