Blevins didn’t tell us the length or the deal of the amount of money, but ESPN reports that it’s a 1yr/$6.5 million contract.
Blevins is entering his 10th MLB season, and his third with the Mets. He spent his first seven seasons with the Oakland A’s, then pitched for the Washington Nationals in 2014 before going to NL East rival Mets.
Last season, Blevins threw 42 innings in 73 appearances where he posted a 2.79 ERA; he posted a 4-2 record and saved two games in three opportunities. Opponents hit just .229 off the lefty.
