Brooks Raley (New York Mets) is expected to join the Mets next year.
Metz local media recently predicted that the Mets will exercise the club’s option in 2024, given that Rayleigh is the left-hander needed for the team. The annual salary for next year is $6.5 million. Reilly also reportedly said he wanted to stay with the Mets.메이저사이트
Rayleigh signed with the Tampa Bay Rays for a two-year, $10 million and $6.5 million club option in 2024 ahead of the 2022 season. He was traded to the Mets ahead of this season. Without exercising the club’s options, Rayleigh could come to the FA market with a $1.25 million buyout.
Reilly has a 2.68 ERA in Tampa Bayers last year, and is also recording a 2.94 ERA in the Mets this year (Korea Standard Time).
Rayleigh has the advantage of having excellent strikeout ability. In 2021, he struck out 65 in 49 innings for the Houston Astros, and last year he struck out 61 in 53.2 innings. This year, he also struck out 52 in 49 innings.
The Mets struggled with Rayleigh’s trade until the trade deadline, but remained in the team because he was the only bullpen left-hander.
Rayleigh has been an ace for the KBO Lotte Giants for five years.
Reilly, who did not renew his contract with Lotte after the 2019 season, tried again in the Major League. He succeeded in entering the big leagues after signing a minor league contract with the Cincinnati Reds, but was traded to Houston during the 2020 season.
