Addison Reed, who will likely serve as the team's closer if Jeurys Familia is suspended to start the season, was out in the bullpen early Sunday morning with pitching coach Dan Warthen working to fix a "delivery flaw," according to a report from Kristie Ackert in the Daily News.

Reed allowed six earned runs on six hits in only 0.2 innings last Friday.

"He was leaking out towards first base," said Warthen, who told Ackert that Reed has been letting his body lean towards first base during his follow through. "He fixed it this morning. Not an issue."

Reed on becoming Mets closer 00:04:28
Reliever Addison Reed joins Mets Hot Stove to discuss his outlook for the 2017 season.

In the event Jeurys Familia begins the season under suspension, Addison Reed will be the team's closer and Fernando Salas will be his set-up man, Terry Collins said Monday.

"As of today, he would be that guy, because he has done it before and he's been successful at it," Collins said of Reed, who had a 1.97 ERA and identical 1.97 FIP in 80 games last season.

He and the Mets avoided salary arbitration in December, agreeing to a one-year deal worth $7.75 million, according to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.

Mets Video Recap: Feb. 20 00:02:48
SNY's Steve Gelbs and Marc Carig of Newsday cover Monday at Mets camp, including Neil Walker rumors and a close look at Amed Rosario

The New York Mets seem comfortable together in spring training as they prepare for their first game on Friday. Team morale also seems high.

Contract discussions between second baseman Neil Walker and the Mets are "probably dead."

Shortstop Amed Rosario, one of the top prospects in baseball, said he has learned a great deal from Jose Reyes.

Manager Terry Collins said he sees upside in what Rosario and outfielder Michael Conforto, and also said Fernando Salas would step into the set-up role should Addison Reed become interim closer in the event Jeurys Familia is suspended under the MLB's domestic violence policy.

Mets Hot Stove talks bullpen 00:02:48
Jim Duquette and Nelson Figueroa debate what the Mets options are as they look to add solid relievers in the bullpen.

First off, I was wrong. I recently argued in favor of the Mets signing Sergio Romo, but I've changed my mind. In the last few days, I've been talked out of Romo by friends in San Francisco, a former manager and one scout that has watched him closely the last few years.

"He's not their kind of a guy, and Sandy Alderson has to know that," one person said. "Plus, Terry would burn him out in a week."

I think this is probably right. The Mets have reportedly reached out to Romo, but I now doubt he's Alderson's top target.

The Mets will avoid arbitration with RH reliever Addison Reed, agreeing to terms on a one-year deal worth $7.75 million, according to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.

Reed, 28, made $5.3 million last season.

He had a 1.97 ERA and identical 1.97 FIP with a 0.94 WHIP while striking out 91 in 77 2/3 innings (80 games) in 2016.

I expect Jeurys Familia will be suspended to start the season. If that's the case, Addison Reed will be the New York Mets' temporary closer. How the bullpen shakes out after that is still a bit of a mystery.

Will Jerry Blevins be back?

Blevins is reportedly seeking a three-year deal, probably worth $15-20 million. The Mets would love to have him back, and I'm sure he'd like to return, but there's no evidence that Sandy Alderson is interested in making this type of commitment to a relief pitcher, even Blevins.

The Mets have not ruled out exploring a trade for White Sox RH reliever David Robertson, a source recently told Newsday's Marc Carig.

Robertson, 31, will earn $12 million in 2017, $13 million in 2018, and then be a free agent.

He had a 3.47 ERA (3.58 FIP) and 37 saves for the White Sox last season, while striking out 75 batters in 64 innings.

In September, Robertson had arthroscopic surgery to clean up a meniscus issue in his left knee. However, the White Sox have repeatedly said he'll be 100 percent for the start of spring training.

The Mets haven't really commented on what their payroll will look like next seaosn. But, the way I see it, they can probably add roughly $50 million to their payroll next season, which - right now - is projected to open around $105 million when you factor in raises and players under contract.

I explained my reasoning here earlier this week, which is more or less the same conclusion reached Thursday by ESPN.com's Adam Rubin...

That $105 million does not include Yoenis Cespedes, Bartolo Colon or Neil Walker.

The Mets are going to need to acquire help for next year's bullpen. However, I can't see them signing a free-agent closer, like Aroldis Chapman or Kenley Jansen.Instead, I see them signing pitchers similar in value to what they've done in the past, especially since Jeurys Familia and Addison Reed will combine to earn roughly $20 million next season...

Terry Collins on Wild Card loss 00:07:13
New York Mets manager Terry Collins speaks to the media following the Mets' loss to the Giants in the NL Wild Card Game.

Jeurys Familia allowed a three-run home run to Conor Gillaspie with one out in the top of the ninth inning as the New York Mets' hopes to return to the World Series ended with a 3-0 loss to Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco Giants in the wild card game on Wednesday at Citi Field.

In case you missed it…

  • Familia allowed a leadoff double to Brandon Crawford and a one-out walk to Joe Panik to bring up Gillaspie, who hit a three-run home run to right-center field to break a scoreless tie.
  • Bumgarner struck out six batters in a four-hit shutout. 
  • Addison Reed pitched out of a bases-loaded, two-out jam in the top of the eighth inning by striking out Hunter Pence.
  • Bumgarner got Asdrubal Cabrera to line out softly back to the mound with Ty Kelly on second base to end the bottom of the eighth inning.
  • Noah Syndergaard struck out 10 batters in seven scoreless innings and took a no-hitter into the sixth inning. He gave up two hits and three walks, throwing 70 of 108 pitches for strikes.
  • Denard Span broke up Syndergaard's no-hitter with a clean single with two outs in the sixth inning.
  • Curtis Granderson made a run-saving catch to end the sixth inning when he made a running, over-the-shoulder catch and crashed into the wall to rob Brandon Belt of an extra-base hit.

What's next…

The Giants face Jon Lester and the Chicago Cubs in Game 1 of the NLDS on Friday at 9:15 p.m. ET.

The Mets' season is over.

The Mets are no longer to trade for a reliever, a person familiar with the team's thinking recently said, according to a Aug. 23 report by MLB.com's Anthony DiComo

However, later that day, Jon Niese was put on the disabled list, 24 hours after Steven Matz was put on the disabled list.

The Mets recently called up Triple-A starting pitcher Robert Gsellman to use in the bullpen, but he's now expected to replace Niese in the rotation.

  • The Yankees loaded the bases off Lugo (0-1) with nobody out on a walk, a single and a bunt for a fielder's choice. Ben Gamel laid down a sacrifice bunt, but Lugo's throw to third base was a split second late. Two batters later, Castro hit a deep sac fly to right field to break a 5-5 tie.
  • Betances struck out Curtis Granderson with runners on second and third to end the game to record his first save since Oct. 1, 2015. James Loney led off the 10th inning with a double and advanced to third on a sac bunt. Betances hit Alejandro de Aza, who advanced to second on a groundout. Betances struck out Granderson on three pitches.
  • Adam Warren (1-0) pitched two scoreless innings of relief for the win.
  • Didi Gregorius tied the game with a two-out, two-run single in the top of the eighth inning off Addison Reed. The Yankees had runners on the corners with two outs, but a wild pitch allowed pinch runner Ronald Torreyes to advance to second and score on Gregorius' single.
  • Matt Reynolds hit a three-run home run off CC Sabathia in the sixth inning that turned a 3-2 deficit into a 5-3 Mets lead.
  • Brett Gardner broke a 1-1 tie with an RBI double in the fifth inning, then scored on Ellsbury's RBI single that gave the Yankees a 3-1 lead.
  • Michael Conforto made it 3-2 with an RBI double in the bottom of the fifth.
  • Sabathia allowed five runs, eight hits and three walks in 5 2/3 innings. 
  • Logan Verrett gave up three runs, four hits and three walks in five innings.
  • Wilmer Flores homered in the second inning to give the Mets an early 1-0 lead.

A new era may have begun in the Yankees organization, but the 2016 squad still needs to compete. They did just that, battling back to tie the score in the eighth inning, and taking the lead in the 10th inning with the eventual winning run.

New York Mets manager Terry Collins praised relievers Addison Reed and Jeurys Familia for shutting down the Colorado Rockies in the eighth and ninth innings in Sunday's 6-4 win at Citi Field.

After Neil Walker's three-run home run gave the Mets a lead, Reed and Familia shut the door, striking out five of the seven batters they faced en route to Familia's league-leading 37th save of the year.

"What Jeurys has done, I'd have to say Addison Reed has been an accomplice to it all," Collins said Thursday, according to MLB.com's Joshua Needelman. "When it came to picking the All-Star team, one of the things I heard from two or three managers was, 'You know what, their closers are having big years, but their setup guys were the guys who really needed consideration.' I said, 'I know exactly what you're talking about, because I've got one.'"

Reliever Addison Reed surrendered a go-ahead two-run home run to Atlanta's Adonis Garcia in the eighth inning as the New York Mets lost to the Braves, 4-3, on the road Thursday night.

Reed had not allowed a run in 16 appearances from early May to early June. Since, he has allowed six runs and eight hits in his last six innings of work, raising his ERA from 1.63 to to 2.70 in fewer than two weeks.

"I've gone through way worse stretches than this," Reed said after the game. "This is part of the game. You can't be perfect, so I'll forget about it and be ready to go tomorrow."

Once Colon left after a line drive struck his thumb, manager Terry Collins brought in Robles, who threw a career-high 65 pitches in 3 2/3 innings. Robles pitched into the fifth inning and struck out six batters.

"We were short tonight," manager Terry Collins said after the game. "So, I just said he's got to be the guy, let's see if he can get us to the fifth inning."

Mets RHP Addison Reed is thrilled to be back with the Mets in 2016 after he was a waiver deal last August.

"I had a blast here, just making it to the World Series," Reed said. "The group of guys that are here -- everything was awesome. There is not one thing that I can say bad about this organization. When I found out I was coming back, it was the best news ever."

The Mets signed Reed to a one-year, $5.3 million deal in the offseason after he dominated out of the bullpen last year with a 1.17 ERA in 17 outings toward the end of the season.

Lucas Duda, Jeurys Familia, Josh Edgin, Matt Harvey, Jenrry Mejia, Addison Reed, Ruben Tejada, Carlos Torres, and Neil Walker all filed for salary arbitration on Tuesday (Jan. 12).

The Mets had tendered contracts to all of the above players (except for Walker, who was later acquired from the Pirates in exchange for Jon Niese) on Dec. 2.

If the Mets are unable to agree to contracts with any or all of the above players, their salary will be determined by an arbitrator in February.

In the case of Mejia, while he's projected to earn roughly $2.5 million this coming season, his salary will be prorated due to the suspension that will keep him out until late-July.
