Former Mets LHP Jerry Blevins signed a minor-league deal with the Oakland A's, according to the New York Post's Joel Sherman.
Blevins, 35, struggled on the mound for New York last season, going 3-2 with a 4.85 ERA in 64 relief appearances. He totaled 41 strikeouts in 42 2/3 innings and recorded a 1.36 WHIP.
In 2016 and 2017, he posted sub-3.00 ERAs, becoming a strong option in the Mets' bullpen. He had a 3.38 ERA in 219 relief appearances since joining New York in 2015.
But now, he will return to the team with which he debuted. Blevins spent seven years with Oakland from 2007 to 2013, and he pitched one season with the Washington Nationals before joining the Mets.
Should Blevins reach the majors, he will earn $1.5 million, according to Sherman.
