  • Mets' Brooks Raley: Team exercises option

    The Mets exercised Raley's $6.5 million option for 2024 on Friday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    The alternative would've been to pay him a $1.25 million buyout, but retaining the southpaw was an easy call on the team's part. Raley had a fine 2023 campaign, posting a 2.80 ERA and 61:25 K:BB over 54.2 innings. He's slated for setup duties in 2024 as Edwin Diaz makes his return from knee surgery.

  • Mets' Brooks Raley: Blows save, takes loss

    Raley (0-2) blew the save and took the loss in Tuesday's 7-6 loss against the Royals. He allowed three runs (two earned) on two hits and didn't record a strikeout over one-third of an inning.

    After handling ninth-inning duties in the Mets' last three contests, Raley took over in the 10th after Drew Smith was handed the ball for the ninth frame and turned in a scoreless inning. Entering the contest with a two-run lead, Raley was unable to secure the win, allowing back-to-back hits to tie the game before being pulled. With the Mets' closing job seemingly wide open following the departure of David Robertson, Tuesday's outing definitely won't help Raley's chances at earning more save chances.

  • Mets' Brooks Raley: Collects save No. 2

    Raley picked up the save Sunday against the Nationals. He allowed one walk and struck out three over a scoreless inning.

    For the third straight night, Raley was tasked with ninth-inning duties and managed to convert for his second save of the season Sunday. The southpaw looks to have the jump on the closer role following the trade of David Robertson and has turned in three straight scoreless outings for the Mets. Though it's likely Raley will have a short leash considering Adam Ottavino and Drew Smith each saw save opportunities earlier in the year, it appears to be Raley's job to lose. Through 46 appearances (38 innings), Raley boasts a 2.37 ERA and a 43:18 K:BB.

  • Mets' Brooks Raley: Steps in to notch save

    Raley earned a save against the Nationals on Thursday, issuing one walk and striking out one batter in a scoreless inning.

    David Robertson entered the day as the Mets' closer and even warmed up in the bullpen while New York rallied in the eighth inning, but the righty reliever didn't get a chance to pitch following a lengthy rain delay. As it turns out, Robertson ended up being traded to Miami, so Raley's save conversion may be a sign that he'll get more ninth-inning opportunities moving forward. Raley has worked primarily in a setup role this season with 19 holds against just two saves, though he did notch six saves with the Rays last season. Adam Ottavino has finished games at times for the Mets this year -- he has six saves in seven chances -- and figures to be a prominent factor in the team's new closer picture as well.

  • Mets' Brooks Raley: Collects 15th hold

    Raley struck out the only two batters he faced Friday to record his 15th hold of the season in a loss to the Giants.

    The southpaw fired six of eight pitches for strikes as he rung up Casey Schmitt and LaMonte Wade for the final two outs of the seventh inning, but David Robertson coughed up the lead in the eighth. Raley is third in the NL in holds behind Tyler Rogers' 20 and Steven Wilson's 16 despite missing a couple weeks in May with a sore elbow, bolstering that production with a 2.51 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 31:10 K:BB through 28.2 innings.
