3. Signing right-handed reliever John Brebbia

John Brebbia would be another great addition to this Mets bullpen. While he is not on the same level as Peralta and Suter, Brebbia could be another option for the Mets to sign for a minimal one-year contract.

Brebbia has pitched for the San Francisco Giants over the last three seasons. After having a rough 2021 season pitching to a 5.89 ERA in his limited action, he's been a solid reliever as of late. In 2022, he had an ERA of 3.19 in 76 games pitched and this past season was another good season for the right-hander as he had an ERA just under four at 3.99 in 40 games pitched and gave up 17 earned runs.

This can be another solid and quality relief pitcher that the Mets should really consider picking up. He is not as dominant as Wandy Peralta and Brent Suter are and has shown some inconsistency in the past, the Mets have nothing to lose if they pick up a guy like that. Other strong relievers Adam Ottavino and David Robertson who pitched for the Mets out of the bullpen this past year are not expected to be back so the Mets need to address this weakness that they have. Making these bullpen moves can give the Mets the depth they need.
