Blevins has earned a 3.04 ERA in 47.1 innings with the Mets this year. Blevins has been used predominantly as a situational lefty, and he's followed up a great 2016 campaign with more of the same this season. Blevins has been able to hold left-handed batters to a .209 batting average, and owns a phenomenal 12.93 K/9. The 34-year-old left-hander should continue to see high-leverage innings out of the bullpen.
Blevins fired 1.2 scoreless innings while striking out two to earn the save Friday against the Athletics. Blevins was protecting a two-run lead and was allowed to stay on the mound while collecting five outs to notch his first save of the season. Aside from the save, he's a decent middle reliever with a 3.16 ERA, but an unimpressive 1.34 WHIP.
Blevins walked three batters, including two with the bases loaded, while recording just one out in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers. The runs were charged to Paul Sewald but this was still a terrible outing for the veteran left-hander, who managed to get just five of his 18 pitches on the night over the plate. Blevins still has a 2.22 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 36:12 K:BB in 24.1 innings on the season along with four wins and 10 holds, and assuming this bout of wildness wasn't the result of an injury, he should remain a solid relief option in deep fantasy formats that value setup men.
Blevins retired the only batter he faced to record his fifth hold of the season in Wednesday's loss to the Giants. The veteran lefty has been impressive in his situational role so far this season, posting a 0.73 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 17:5 K:BB through 12.1 innings over 20 appearances. Blevins also has two wins to go with his five holds, giving him some extra value in deep NL-only formats where his skill set is worth a roster spot.
Blevins allowed a hit and a walk while striking out one in 0.2 innings of relief to get credited with the win in Monday's 4-3 victory over the Phillies. The veteran lefty specialist is enjoying a solid start to the season, with four of the seven outs he's recorded coming via strikeout. Blevins has yet to pitch a full inning in four appearances, but his role in the Mets' bullpen should still allow him to be a reliable source of holds while also picking up the occasional save or win.
