Sources: Ottavino agrees to 1-year deal with Mets

The Mets’ march toward pitching depth continued on Sunday. A day after acquiring starter Chris Bassitt in a deal with the A’s, the team agreed to terms on a one-year, $4 million contract with reliever Adam Ottavino, according to multiple sources.

The Mets have not confirmed the deal, which is pending a physical. General manager Billy Eppler declined comment for that reason, saying only: “If we can locate a talented right-handed reliever, I would definitely welcome it.”

Once that move becomes official, Ottavino will join Edwin Díaz, Seth Lugo and Trevor May at the back of New York’s bullpen. He posted a 4.21 ERA in 69 appearances last year for the Red Sox, striking out 71 batters in 62 innings. Since 2018, Ottavino has averaged 11.9 strikeouts per nine innings while producing a 3.05 ERA for the Rockies, Yankees and Red Sox.
