2. Signing lefty reliever Brent Suter

Another left-handed pitcher for the Mets to look into is Brent Suter. Suter, who has a connection with Mets president David Stearns when they were both in Milwaukee would be another great fit for this Mets bullpen in 2024. Stearns has seen Suter pitched up close before and he knows what he's made of and capable of doing so this move makes the most sense.

Suter who pitched for the Colorado Rockies last year had a very good season, especially playing in a ballpark that gives up a lot of home runs and being on a team that lost 103 games. He pitched to a 3.38 ERA in 57 games, had 55 strikeouts, and had a record of 4-3 in the 69 innings that he pitched. Suter also only gave up 26 earned runs all season which is impressive when he was on a team last season that was one of the worst in baseball.

So what's better than having one lefty in your bullpen, how about having two left-handed pitchers? This is a great fit for the Mets and adding two lefties in the bullpen would be perfect for the Mets. While the Mets team bullpen ERA was not horrible in 2023 as it stood at 4.45, that can't be the case again in 2024. And adding another lefty arm like Suter will make this bullpen a lot better.
