Justin Wilson

The Mets surprised fans with the addition of Justin Wilson to their bullpen. The veteran lefty should lead the way as the top southpaw in relief. Will it be a successful year?

A rocky start leads to an up and down season for Wilson though he rights the ship just in time for a September playoff run. – Jason Dye

Many Mets’ fans hoped the team would sign Wilson to add depth to the bullpen, and this is something they will not regret. I expect Wilson to have a terrific 2019 in a role similar to that of Lugo or Gsellman. – Leen Amin

Adding Justin Wilson to the roster gave the Mets something they really needed: reliability from the left side in the bullpen. I expect him to thrive with the Mets this year and make us forget all about Jerry Blevins‘ finer years. – Tim Boyle

Justin Wilson is projected to be a major piece of the Mets’ bullpen in 2019. While he may not get the publicity of Diaz or Familia, Wilson will be the team’s primary options against left-handed hitters. His presence on the team solidifies the Mets as one of the best bullpens in baseball. – Allen Settle

The Mets need a strong lefty arm they can rely on and I hope Wilson becomes that guy. I hope he is tested in the spring by good showings from invitees to see how he performs. – Kevin Strauss

He’ll be asked to get more than just lefties out, his splits show he’s actually better at getting righties out. You will see him pitch the 7th and sometimes 8th inning. – Mark Sales

Justin Wilson will perform exactly as he did in 2018. Not bad. But not great either. – Nick Scheurer

I believe Justin Wilson makes about 35 to 40 relief appearances for the Mets in 2019. I am predicting a line of 38 innings pitched with 35 strikeouts and about 15 BB with a 3.85 ERA. He will regress a little with BABIP. – Steve Malik
