Absolutely no issue with this move. His last season (2018) with the Mets was rough. He couldn’t make a major league roster in 2020. He was released by the Giants right before the season started. I’m actually surprised Brodie Van Wagenen didn’t trade for him.
But, hey. Why not? Minor league deal? Let’s see if he has anything left.
**Please don’t use that against me in arguments to bring back Colon and Harvey!**
Personally, I don’t see anything coming of this. He made his mark in the league as a lefty specialist, and with the new three batter rule in effect I don’t see him being a factor.
But certainly wishing Jerry Blevins the best.
