BaronThe Mets have filled their need from the left side of their bullpen, agreeing to re-sign LHP Jerry Blevins to a one-year contract worth $4 million, according to Matt Yallof of MLB Network.

Blevins confirmed he is returning to the Mets on Twitter.

The deal is pending a physical and includes $1 million in incentives, according to Yallof.

Blevins missed most of the 2015 season after breaking his arm from a comebacker on April 19 against the Marlins. He required season-ending surgery in late July after falling on that same arm in Port St. Lucie.

Blevins was acquired for Matt den Dekker just before Opening Day in 2015, and left-handed hitters went 0-for-15 against him before he got injured.

Left-handlers have hit just .206 against Blevins in his career.
