Mets Season in Review: Jerry Blevins
Jerry Blevins made an impact on a Mets bullpen that didn’t have quite the success they wanted to in 2016.
Being acquired right before the start of the 2015 season from the Washington Nationals, we didn’t see much of Blevins because of injury.
Through 5 measly innings pitched during his 2015 season, Blevins struck out 4 and walked none. Not too many people can say they got through an entire season without surrendering a single hit (corny joke alert)!
But one thing Blevins had was the luxury of being a lefty. That played a big role into the reason of him landing a one-year contract worth $4 million, including incentives, to remain with the Mets.
With not much to judge him by on the previous year, Blevins had to prove a lot of people that he could bounce back from a fractured arm and be a big part of the Mets bullpen for the up incoming 2016 season.
