Player Outlook
Adam Ottavino declined his $6.75 million player option for 2024 to become a free-agent after a solid year in high-leverage for the Mets last season. The veteran hurler experienced a dip in velocity, averaging just 92.5 mph on his sinker (a nearly 2 mile per hour difference from 2022), but went on to record a career-high 12 saves in addition to 12 holds. His hard-hit, strikeout and walk rates went in the wrong direction, but his 56.3 groundball rate was a 92nd percentile metric. Ottavino's changeup continues to be effective as his usage of the pitch trends upward, but he only threw it at a 14 percent clip last season. With 66 or more appearances in each of the last three seasons and plenty of high-leverage experience, there should be a market for the 38-year-old for the 2024 season, but don't expect an abundance of saves wherever he signs as Ottavino is likely to fill a 7th or 8th inning role.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Option for saves

    Ottavino should be in the mix for save opportunities going forward after manager Carlos Mendoza said Sunday that closer Edwin Diaz will shift to a "fluid" role, Paige Leckie of MLB.com reports. Diaz had a strong start to the season after missing all of 2023 with a torn patellar tendon, but his confidence is off after a period where he's given up seven runs in his past three outings. Ottavino has a 2.95 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 26:6 K:BB across 18.1 innings this season and has recorded eight holds and a save in a setup role. Reed Garrett should also be in the mix for the ninth inning until Diaz rediscovers his form.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Picks up shaky save

    Ottavino got the save in Tuesday's 7-5 win over the Cardinals, allowing one run on two hits and a walk while striking out two in the ninth. Ottavino was called upon to close the game out after Edwin Diaz had pitched back-to-back days Sunday and Monday. The right-hander surrendered a one-out home run to Lars Nootbaar and then allowed the next two batters to reach, but ultimately got himself out of trouble by striking out Paul Goldschmidt and Alec Burleson to end the game. Ottavino has now given up three runs over his last 2.2 innings and is due for some rest having pitched three of the last four days. He now owns a 3.14 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 24:5 K:BB in 14.1 innings.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Collects win Monday

    Ottavino (1-0) struck out two in a perfect eighth inning Monday to record a win over the Pirates. The veteran right-hander fired 11 pitches (nine strikes) while shutting down the heart of Pittsburgh's order and preserving a 3-3 tie, and the Mets broke the game open in the bottom half of the inning. Ottavino has had an impressive start to the season, racking up a 12:0 K:BB through seven innings with a 2.57 ERA and 0.57 WHIP, and he has two holds in addition to Monday's win as one of Edwin Diaz's primary setup men.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Poised for setup role

    Ottavino has allowed one run this spring over four appearances with a 4:4 K:BB. The 38-year-old right-hander re-signed with the Mets in January and should be one of the team's top setup men in front of closer Edwin Diaz. Ottavino helped cover for Diaz's absence last year and recorded a career-high 12 saves along with 12 holds, but he has six career seasons with 20-plus holds and should return to that level in 2024.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Re-signs with Mets

    Ottavino signed a one-year, $4.5 million contract with the Mets on Saturday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports. Ottavino declined his player option worth $6.75 million earlier in the season, and the fact $4 million of that salary would have been deferred likely played a part in that decision. He'll now stick with the Mets on a cheaper deal and likely reprise his role as a high-leverage reliever. The 38-year-old righty logged a 3.21 ERA and 1.22 WHIP with 62 strikeouts in 61.2 innings last season while collecting a career-best 12 saves. Less ninth-inning work is likely in 2024 with closer Edwin Diaz back and healthy, however.

  • Adam Ottavino: Free agent after declining option

    Ottavino declined his $6.75 million player option for 2024 on Monday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports. Previous reports had indicated that Ottavino was expected to exercise the option to remain with the Mets, but he's ultimately decided against the move. It's worth noting that $4 million of the $6.75 million salary he would have been due in 2024 would have been deferred, which could have weighed into his decision. Ottavino will now be on the lookout for a new deal after posting a 3.21 ERA and 62:29 K:BB over 61.2 innings in 2023.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: New career high in saves

    Ottavino recorded his 12th save of the season in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader sweep of the Phillies, giving up two runs on two hits and a walk in the ninth inning of a 4-3 win. He struck out one. The veteran right-hander nearly blew the save, walking J.T. Realmuto to lead off the ninth and watching rookie Weston Wilson steal two bags after his one-out RBI single brought the Phillies to within a run, but Ottavino was able to retire Jake Cave and Cristian Pache to end the rally. The 12 saves are a career high for the 37-year-old, and he's gone a perfect 5-for-5 on save chances in September while posting a 4.15 ERA and 15:5 K:BB through 8.2 innings.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Secures save Monday

    Ottavino struck out two batters in a perfect inning and earned a save over Miami on Monday. Ottavino needed just 12 pitches to quickly close out the 2-1 win Monday. He has 10 strikeouts during his current 5.2-inning scoreless streak, picking up four saves during that span. Ottavino has converted 11 of his 14 save chances while registering a 2.87 ERA through 59.2 innings.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Nails down save No. 10

    Ottavino struck out one over 1.2 perfect innings Tuesday to record his 10th save of the season in a 7-4 win over the Diamondbacks. Entering the game with the bases loaded and one out in the eighth inning, Ottavino got Corbin Carroll to ground into a double play to escape the jam, then breezed through the heart of the Arizona order in the ninth. The veteran righty has the Mets' last three saves, with Drew Smith being the last pitcher other than Ottavino to collect one back on Sept. 1, and barring a late-season cameo from Edwin Diaz (knee), he'll likely remain the team's closer the rest of the way.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Escapes with save

    Ottavino allowed a hit and a walk in a scoreless inning Sunday, striking out two and earning a save over the Twins. Ottavino put two runners on with one out but danced around the threat to finish off the 2-0 win Sunday. He's given up just one run over his last 10 innings, dropping his season ERA to 3.05 through 60 appearances. He's converted nine of his 12 save chances, including three of his last four.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Nabs eighth save

    Ottavino picked up the save Sunday against the Mariners. He allowed one hit and one walk while striking out three over a scoreless inning. Though Ottavino held the Mariners off the board in the ninth, he allowed a hit and a walk in the inning. The save was Ottavino's first since Aug. 13 and just his eighth on the season. Over his last nine appearances, Ottavino owns a 1.00 ERA and a 10:4 K:BB.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Charged with blown save

    Ottavino was tagged with a blown save against the Rangers on Wednesday, allowing one hit and one walk over one scoreless inning. The Mets led by a run heading into the eighth, and the plan appeared to be to have Brooks Raley serve as a bridge to Ottavino. That plan imploded when Raley allowed three straight baserunners to start the frame, which led to Ottavino being summoned with no outs and the bases loaded. The veteran right-hander hit the first batter he faced to force in the tying run and allowed an RBI single to Jonah Heim but otherwise kept the damage to a minimum. Both runs that crossed the plate while Ottavino was on the mound were charged to Raley, but it the former who had a blown save pasted on his ledger. Still, the outing extended Ottavino's scoreless stretch to seven straight appearances, during which he's allowed just one hit while posting a 5:3 K:BB.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Nets first win

    Ottavino (1-4) picked up the win in Sunday's victory over the Angels, striking out one in a perfect ninth inning. After dispatching the Halos' 5-6-7 hitters on 15 pitches (nine strikes) in the top of the ninth to preserve a 2-2 tie, Ottavino was rewarded when Rafael Ortega delivered a walk-off single in the bottom of the frame. Ottavino has only one save in August following the trade of David Robertson, but that's more due to a lack of opportunity rather than poor performance -- the veteran righty has a 2.00 ERA and 1.00 WHIP through nine innings on the month, albeit with a lackluster 7:5 K:BB.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Notches seventh save

    Ottavino threw a perfect inning to earn a save over Atlanta on Sunday. Ottavino needed just eight pitches to force three groundouts and finish off the 7-6 win. It was his first save chance since Aug. 1 and his first conversion since July 1. He's recorded seven saves in nine chances while registering a 3.45 ERA through 47 innings. Brooks Raley picked up a hold in the eighth inning.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Mets won't name closer

    Mets manager Buck Showalter said Friday that he won't name a closer following the trade of David Robertson, with Ottavino and other options "on the table," Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. "All options are on the table... you might be surprised who might emerge," Showalter said. As DiComo points out, the right-handed Ottavino easily has the most closing experience in the current Mets bullpen with 39 career saves, but southpaw Brooks Raley has posted better numbers this season and collected a save Thursday. Both relievers are worth rostering in deeper fantasy leagues, but it sounds as if save opportunities will be split among multiple pitchers unless one seizes the role.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Nails down sixth save

    Ottavino walked one in a scoreless ninth inning Saturday to record his sixth save of the season in a 4-1 win over the Giants. David Robertson had worked each of the previous two days and blew a save Friday, so Ottavino got the call in this one and got the job done. It was his first save since May 26, and Ottavino's recent control issues don't suggest he's going to supplant Robertson in the closer role any time soon -- over his last four appearances, he has a 3:6 K:BB while also hitting one batter and firing two wild pitches. On the season, Ottavino has a 4.01 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 35:15 K:BB through 33.2 innings, adding eight holds to his ledger.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Notches fifth save

    Ottavino picked up the save in Friday's 5-2 win over the Rockies. He allowed one hit while striking out one over two-thirds of a scoreless inning. He did not walk a batter. Ottavino put together a second straight scoreless outing after giving up three runs in 0.2 innings against Cleveland on May 21. While the veteran has had several solid outings this year, his 4.58 ERA is inflated largely due to three rough outings this month. The right-hander remains in the high-leverage mix but is behind David Robertson in the pecking order for saves.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Converts fourth save

    Ottavino allowed a hit in a scoreless inning and picked up a save over the Rockies on Friday. Ottavino was charged with his first blown save Wednesday but was quickly given the reigns in the ninth inning again. This time, he needed just 10 pitches to lock down the 1-0 win despite yielding a leadoff single to Randal Grichuk. Ottavino turned in his first scoreless appearance since April 25 and lowered his season ERA to 3.75 through 12 innings. He's converted four of his five save chances while adding in two holds.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Blows save in matinee

    Ottavino (0-2) blew the save and took the loss in the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Tigers, giving up two runs on two hits and a hit-by-pitch in an inning of relief. He struck out two. Entering the game in the bottom of the eighth inning with the Mets ahead 5-4, Ottavino couldn't get the job done as Eric Haase smacked a two-run single to right-center with two outs. It's the first blown save the veteran right-hander has been charged with this season, although he was being used to set up David Robertson on Wednesday. Through 12 appearances and 11 innings, Ottavino has a 4.09 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 13:4 K:BB, and while he remains in the high-leverage mix, he's clearly the second option for saves in the bullpen behind Robertson.

  • Mets' Adam Ottavino: Activated Saturday

    The Mets activated Ottavino (personal) from the paternity list Saturday. He missed a couple days to the paternity list but will be available in high-leverage situations for the next Mets game, which is scheduled to be Sunday against Atlanta after Saturday's game was postponed. David Robertson notched a save Thursday and should go back to sharing the opportunities with Ottavino.
