Free-agent reliever Jerry Blevins is returning to Queens after signing a deal with the New York Mets, according to Jon Heyman of Today’s Knuckleball.

Ken Davidoff of the New York Post later confirmed Heyman’s reports and added that the deal is worth $6 million guaranteed.

The 33-year-old veteran is coming off one of his finest MLB seasons with the Mets as their seventh-inning man in front of Addison Reed and closer Jeurys Familia and at times, a lefty specialist in the eighth and ninth innings. 

Blevins appeared in a career-high 73 games, going 4-2 with a 2.79 ERA, 16 holds and two saves as a big part of the Mets bullpen:
