Sergio Romo

Last but not least, a 12 year veteran of the game and a 3-time World Series Champion with the San Francisco Giants, Sergio Romo may be the oldest entry on this list at 36 years old, but can still be a trusted arm out of the pen.

A former All-Star, Romo has appeared in 708 games and posted a career ERA of 2.92 with 129 saves, making him arguably the most accomplished reliever on this list.

In addition to that, Romo also has a solid record in the postseason, which he has appeared in 5 separate seasons, compiling 29 games, over which he has a 3.55 ERA

Romo spent the majority of his career in San Francisco before leaving the team following the 2016 season. He spent parts of the previous seasons playing with the Dodgers and Rays before signing with the Marlins prior to the 2019 season.

He spent the majority of the season with Miami, before being traded to Minnesota. Between the two teams, he appeared in 65 games, logging 60.1 innings with a 3.43 ERA and recording 20 saves, proving he can still go, even at his age.

The Mets need consistency out of the bullpen, and a steady hand that can perform in high-pressure situations. Romo has proven time and time again that he can still be trusted to be given that ball when it counts, and his presence would definitely help up New York’s game if they were to bring him in.
