Heading into the Winter Meetings, free agent reliever Blake Treinen seemed to make a lot of sense for the New York Mets, a team in need of building bullpen depth.
Now it appears that Treinen is off the market.
ESPN's Jeff Passan has reported that Treinen and the Dodgers are in agreement on a one-year deal worth $10 million. Passan added that Treinen had multiple offers within that same price range.
Treinen, a 31-year-old right-hander, has pitched to a 2.97 ERA over his six-year career with the Nationals and A's. Treinen's best season came in 2018, when he made the AL All-Star team with a 0.78 ERA. He finished sixth in Cy Young voting that season.
The Mets did make a pitching move on Wednesday, adding starter Michael Wacha on a one-year deal. Wacha's addition likely means that Seth Lugo and Robert Gsellman will stay in the bullpen for now, though both have the ability to start.
Brodie Van Wagenen has said that building pitching depth is the number one priority for the Mets, and Treinen certainly would have been a nice addition to the team's bullpen.
