GEICO SportsNite: Jerry Blevins 00:02:14
John Harper discusses the Mets re-signing Jerry Blevins, Fernando Salas and what this means for the team's bullpen in 2017.

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.

Last night was a confusing experience. It was painful to experience 1,500 innings of baseball between March through last night, only to see it all go up in flames in the span of 10 minutes. I thought a few hours sleep might help my perspective, but it didn't. I'm still unsure where to begin this post-game write up. So, here's where I'm at with the following...

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 will promote OF Michael Conforto, infielder Ty Kelly, RHP Gabriel Ynoa and C Kevin Plawecki when rosters expand Sept. 1, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

T.J. Rivera, who hit .289 in 13 games with the Mets this season, is not eligible to be promoted to the big leagues until 10 days after his Aug. 29 demotion to Triple-A.

Conforto, 23, who was sent down Aug. 12, is batting .450 with four home runs during his last 10 games in Las Vegas. He hit just .239 with 29 extra base hits in 84 games during two stints with the Mets this season.

The Mets added outfielder Jay Bruce, LH reliever Jon Niese, Triple-A infielder Ty Kelly and LH reliever Josh Edgin to their 25-man roster, the team announced.

In turn, shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera and outfielder Justin Ruggiano have been put on the 15-day disabled list, while reliever Seth Lugo and outfielder Brandon Nimmo have been sent back to Triple-A.

Cabrera left the game on July 31 with a strained patella tendon in his left knee. He had similar injury in spring training, which caused him to miss 17 days.

Ruggiano, who was acquired July 30, left a game two days later with a mild hamstring strain.
