Once the best + all-star finishing, going to the Mets?… “Close relationship with Director Showalter”

The New York Mets, who failed to sign Carlos Correa, turned their attention to bullpen reinforcements this time.

‘MLB Network’ columnist John Heyman said on the 11th (Korean time), “With Correa going to Minnesota, the Mets looked elsewhere to improve this offseason. According to 토토사이트 sources, the Mets have shown interest in left-handed bullpen Jack Britton.”

Britton was once evaluated as the closer that represents the major leagues. He has been in charge of the closer since his days with the Baltimore Orioles, and after moving to the New York Yankees, he played as a top-notch setup man.

He recorded a career record of 35 wins, 26 losses, a 3.13 ERA, 61 holds, 154 saves, and 532 strikeouts, and was a two-time All-Star and won the Mariano Rivera Award. In particular, in 2016, he performed tremendously, coming in 4th place in the Cy Young Award voting.

However, from the 2021 season, sluggishness and frequent injuries continued, and last year, he only appeared in 3 games. In the end, there was no renewal of his contract, and he came to the market as a free agent.

Despite this slump, it is known that more teams are showing interest in him than expected, and the Mets are one of them. 토토사이트

Heyman said, “Britten has been tutored by manager Buck Showalter in his Baltimore days, and Dom Chitty, who was the Baltimore bullpen coach from 2014 to 2016, recently joined the Mets. This could be a good option.”

The Mets are building a winning team consisting of Edwin Diaz, Adam Ottavino and David Robertson. Here, Brooks Rayleigh was recruited to form a powerful bullpen. If a healthy Briton joins here, it is evaluated that it will be the best bullpen in the major leagues.
