Could Brad Hand come to the Mets?

In an interesting twist, Cleveland has put lefty reliever Brad Hand on waivers for any team to claim. The move was made to save Cleveland $1M from a contract buyout, which seems petty, however the team that claims him has the opportunity to pick up his $10M option for the 2021 season.

Hand actually led the league in saves this past season with 16 and posted a 2.05 ERA in the process.

Throughout his career, Hand has appeared in 396 games while putting up a 3.65 ERA and has struck out 624 batters in 608.2 innings pitched.

I’d like for the team to re-sign lefty Justin Wilson, however these two could pair up to be a lethal combination out of the bullpen. Not to mention that Hand would be an evident upgrade over Daniel Zamora.
