Teams Still Showing Trade Interest in Jerry Blevins

Jon Heyman of Fancred Sports is reporting that teams are still showing interest in New York Mets left-handed reliever Jerry Blevins.

Blevins can still be traded though he wouldn’t be eligible for the playoff roster of the team acquiring him at this point.

The recently turned 35-year-old has a 3.55 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 40 strikeouts in 38 innings this season for the Mets. Blevins has been much better recently though holding opponents to a .398 OPS in the second half and has a 2.60 ERA in 34.2 innings since his blowup on April 19 against the Atlanta Braves.

Blevins will be a free agent at the end of the season which would give the acquring team only a few weeks of his services.

The Mets already made one September trade sending minor league utility man Patrick Kivlehan to the Arizona Diamondbacks for cash. Kivlehan was added to the D’Backs active roster.
