It's no secret that the Mets counter has struggled this season, highlighted by Friday's two defeats.
Enter Edwin Diaz, Jeurys Familiaand others, the Mets simply have not figured out the best way to handle late innings.
There is a new name on the market that could be an interesting option for the back of the Mets pen.
Cody AllenA 30-year-old right-handed man was named by the Angels on Saturday morning. Signed to be the closest team this season, Allen fought the Angels, posting an average of 6.26 points in 25 appearances while losing his last role. His bad season gained momentum on Friday, when he allowed four points in two-thirds of the heat against the Rays.
Maybe a change of scenery would be good for Allen, and his connection Mickey Callaway, with the problems of the Mets in the pen, would seem to make New York a good choice.
In seven seasons with the Indians, Allen recorded 149 games, averaging points in under 3.00 at 2.98. While Callaway was the coach of the 2013 Indian pitchers at 5 pm, Allen scored 122 of those saves with an EER of 2.59.
Allen being DFAE on Friday, he can be claimed by another team within seven days or he can be traded. If Allen cancels the waivers, it is likely that he will be released rather than heading towards the miners.
