Jerry Blevins has made it through 10 major league seasons by agreeing to a series of one-year contracts. Given the number of lucrative contracts handed out to free-agent relievers, is it finally time that the 33-year-old left-hander lands a multi-year deal?

Rumor CentralThe agent for Blevins tells Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports that he expects his client to secure a deal of at least two years and $12 million.

Top-tier closers such as Aroldis Chapman ($86 million), Kenley Jansen ($80 million) and Mark Melancon ($62 million) have landed mega long-term deals this winter, while top set-up relievers such as Brett Cecil (four years, $30.5 million) and Mike Dunn (three years, $19 million) also have done quite well.

Blevins, a valuable situational reliever who appeared in 73 games with a .229 OBA for the New York Mets last season, made $4 million in 2016.

The Mets are still shopping for a reliever this winter, and Kevin Kernan of the New York Post says a return to Queens “would be the best fit” if New York is willing to give out an extra year. Kernan adds the Blue Jays and Dodgers also have expressed interest in Blevins.

Rosenthal says the Jays are looking for a left-hander to replace Cecil, who signed with the Cardinals, but might balk at a two-year pact since it “could limit the team’s options.”
