The Mets would like to retain pending free agent left-handed reliever Jerry Blevins, but expect him to get "a sizable multiyear offer elsewhere," reports Adam Rubin of ESPN.
Rubin says that might price the Mets out on the 33-year-old Blevins.
Blevins had a 2.79 ERA and 1.21 WHIP with 52 strikeouts in 42 innings (73 appearances) for the Mets this past season, while left-handers hit .255 with a .313 OBP and .324 SLG against him.
He's held left-handers to a .214 average, .266 OBP, and .322 SLG during his 10-year career.
The other left-handed relievers on the Mets' 40-man roster are Josh Edgin, Sean Gilmartin, and Josh Smoker.
