Mets Will Meet With Agents For John Axford and Kevin Gregg

MLB: Cubs vs Padres MAY 22

According to Jim Duquette of MLB Network, the Mets will meet with the agents for free agent relievers John Axford and Kevin Gregg.

I’m not such a big fan of Axford, but I do like Gregg a lot for the Mets and he’s a proven shutdown, late-inning reliever we can use.

Axford, 30, posted a 4.02 ERA and 1.355 WHIP in 75 relief appearances last season for the Brewers and Cardinals. His 10.1 H/9 scares the hell out of me and his velocity nose-dived which is a big concern.

Gregg, 35, had a terrific season for the Cubs posting 3.48 ERA while notching 33 saves in 62 relief appearances.

I would have to believe that Gregg would come at a costly $5 million or more on a one year deal, but if the Mets can afford it, I’m all in.
