Multiple reports Tuesday afternoon say the Mets have signed their first free agent of the Steve Cohen era. But don’t get too excited — it’s just reliever Trevor May.
But don’t be too disappointed, either; by all accounts, May is a solid reliever who is expected to be a quality arm in the bullpen. And as we’ve seen, you can never have too many of those.
May has spent his entire big league career with the Twins, compiling a 4.44 ERA with 367 strikeouts in 316 innings. He has come on strong since missing the 2017 season with Tommy John surgery, with a 3.19 ERA over the past three seasons.
The reports say it is a two-year deal for the 31-year-old. Financial terms have not yet been disclosed. Now let’s go out and get that other pitcher named Trevor!
