The Mets announced their one-year deal with LH reliever Jerry Blevins and designated INF/OF Ty Kelly for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster.
The deal, which was reported last week, will pay Blevins $5.5 million in 2017 and contains a $7 million team option for 2018 with a $1 million buyout, reports Jon Heyman of FanRag. Blevins can also earn $100,000 in incentives each season.
Blevins, 33, came back to the Mets in 2016 after pitching just five innings with the club in 2015 before he fractured and re-fractured his left arm.
In 73 appearances with the Mets last season, Blevins was 4-2 with a 2.79 ERA (3.05 FIP) in 42 innings pitched, during which he struck out 52 batters and walked 15.
In 113 plate appearances, left-handed batters hit .255 against him, which was 73 points higher than right-handed batters.
Kelly, 28, hit .241 with a .352 OBP and .345 SLG with one HR in 71 plate appearances for the Mets last season.
