Mets Looking To Add 3-Time All-Star To Bullpen

Could the New York Mets have one more blockbuster up their sleeves? After going stealth overnight and signing Carlos Correa away from the San Francisco Giants, they still might not be done adding to their roster. One more legit arm for the back of the bullpen would be the topper on the cake. And they're aiming their sights high, according to a number of reports. 

The Mets are interested in working out a trade with the Chicago White Sox for their lock-down closer, Liam Hendriks. 

The back end of the Mets bullpen is already pretty darn good, with top closer Edwin Diaz, along with set-up men David Robertson and Adam Ottavino, plus Brooks Raley. Imagine adding Hendriks to that mix. 

The 33-year-old Aussie has compiled 314 saves in the past four seasons with the White Sox and Oakland A's. He led the American League with 38 saves in 2021, and followed that up this past season with another 37. 

In his two years with the South Siders, he has a 2.66 ERA, a 0.87 WHIP and an astounding 13.8 K/9. 

It will certainly take a premium package to convince the White Sox to sell.
