Alderson Continues to RE-Sign

The New York Mets have been quiet this offseason, besides re-signing Yoenis Cespedes and trade rumors about a plethora of Mets outfielders. Today, Alderson re-signed two key pieces from the 2016 stretch run, Jerry Blevins and Fernando Salas. Blevins inked a 1 year deal worth $5.5 million with a $7 million club option for 2018 with up to $100,000 in incentives; while Salas will sign his deal pending a physical when he joins Blevins and the team in Port St. Lucie this week. This is clearly the safest thing Sandy could have done this offseason, by just plugging holes with guys that were a part of the puzzle in 2016. Blevins was a player Mets fans didn’t think they’d be getting back after the Cespedes signing, but the Wilpons once again shocked us by letting Alderson spend money. Salas is a low risk signing that Alderson hopes can eat innings and bring depth to a bullpen needing it. Alderson did the right thing by re-signing pieces from last year because this roster is good enough to win a World Series (just don’t let Ray Ramirez see anyone), so I give this move a 5 ball rating.
