The New York Mets have closed the pitching gap this offseason, but there’s still work to do.
New York seems to be pretty content with its roster and it likely won’t look much different when spring training starts in February. If the Mets want to make any more additions, signing another relief pitcher would make sense.
One player who could be a spotlight candidate is David Robertson.
Robertson joined the Mets ahead of the 2023 season and he was dominant. The 39-year-old posted a 2.05 ERA in 40 appearances with New York and had 48 strikeouts.
Due to New York having an extremely depressing season, they ended up being one of the biggest sellers at the deadline. David Robertson was traded to the Miami Marlins ahead of the trade deadline, despite voicing that he didn’t want to be dealt off.
Robertson struggled in Florida, logging a 5.06 ERA in 22 appearances with the Marlins.
Now a free agent, it would be very interesting if the Mets send his agent a contract offer. D-Rob wouldn’t cost much because of his age and he has already shown he could impress at Citi.
New York still needs some bullpen help and the familiar face of Robertson could be a perfect veteran option to bring in.
