Brach, 30, has been very strong out of the bullpen for the Orioles. Since 2014, he has gone 22-8 with a 2.61 ERA. In 220.2 innings he has struck out 235 batters and walked 88. He would be a big addition to the Mets bullpen, providing strong set up for Addison Reed and Jeurys Familia.
Brach made $1.25 million in 2016 and is under team control for two more years through arbitration.
According to Joel Sherman on Twitter, the Mets do not want to eat any of either Granderson’s or Bruce’s contract so that could inhibit any talks with the Orioles, who have been trying to bring back the expensive Mark Trumbo.
