Brad Brach exercised his $2.075M player option to remain with the New York Mets, per Tim Healey of Newsday. That’s slightly more than had been previously reported, as Brach’s option had been listed as worth $1.25M. He signed back with the Mets as a free agent this past December. He is represented by Brian Charles of Big League Management Company, LLC.

The 6-foot-6 sinkerballer experienced a discouraging drop in velocity in 2020. After averaging 94.1 mph on his four-seamer in 2019, his fastball clocked in at just 90.3 mph this year. Having previously been heavily reliant on his heater, throwing it roughly half the time, he threw it just 17.1 percent of the time in 2020. By usage, the four-seamer fell to fourth in his arsenal behind a cutter, change-up, and sinker. He made 14 appearances for the Mets in 2020, struggling to the tune of a 5.84 ERA/6.69 FIP across 12 1/3 innings with unfortunately matching 10.2 K/9 and 10.2 BB/9.

Twins owner: We'll take an 'uncertainty discount' for next season

  Twins owner: We'll take an 'uncertainty discount' for next season Twins owner Jim Pohlad said recently that the revenue losses due to the pandemic in 2020 won’t be the impetus for payroll decision-making in 2021, but he does admit to the uncertainty facing next season, especially concerning future fan attendance. Pohlad refers to an “uncertainty discount” in discussing the planning for next season, but what that means in practical terms is yet to be determined. © Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports The Twins will still spend, but cautiously.

Mets fan, and pitcher, Brad Brach gets tested on his Mets knowledge with some trivia from Alyssa Rose.

If the Yankees didn't pick up Britton's 2022 option , the left-handed reliever would have been eligible to opt out this winter. Zack Britton will be with the New York Yankees for at least two more years after the club exercised his -million team option for the 2022 campaign, the team announced Friday.

He had been a stabilizing presence for the Mets in 2019 after being signed off the scrap heap in August. The Cubs released him after a tough first half, but he rebounded with a 3.68 ERA/2.67 FIP in 14 2/3 innings across 16 appearances for the Mets. The right-handed reliever will again look to rebound in his age-35 season, which will be his 11th season as a big-leaguer. Overall, Brach has made 496 appearances out of the bullpen for the Padres, Orioles, Braves, Cubs, and Mets with a 3.39 ERA/3.76 FIP.
