The New York Mets clearly want to improve their bullpen this offseason and we now know their first free agent goal.
According to MLB.com Anthony Dicomo, Mets is “deepening negotiations” with free agent Trevor May. DiComo says he hasn’t reached an agreement yet, but as he says, “there is smoke.”
In May, he made his MLB debut at the Minnesota Twins in 2014, pitching to 7.88ERA and making nine starts. He later moved to the role of bullpen, but had Tommy John’s surgery before the 2017 season. The 6-foot-5 Harler returned to the Minnesota Bullpen in 2018.
In the last three seasons, he pitched 1.19 ERA in May and 153 strikeouts in 113 innings. Featuring a fastball with an average velocity of 96.3mph, the 31-year-old set a career-leading mark at 14.7 K / 9 in the past season.
It has the potential to defeat nearly 40% of the batters faced in 2020 and generate a whifrate at the 99th percentile. Baseball savant..
