Yes, we’ve been writing about a ton of possibilities on Mets Junkies and I shouldn’t have to say that I expect the Mets to sign and trade for each and every one of these guys but… I don’t expect the Mets to sign and trade for each and every one of these guys.

In 2020 the Mississippi born pitcher owned a 6-3 win/loss record while putting up a 3.32 ERA and a 2.2 WAR. The righty also had a decent SO/9 (9.5) as he struck out 89 batters in 84 innings pitched.
He was just as solid in 2019 when he was able to pitch a full season with the Rangers. In 33 starts, Lynn went 16-11 with a slightly higher ERA of 3.67 and striking out a whopping 246 batters in 208.1 innings.

With the Mets in dire need of pitching, Lynn has proven to be extremely dependable since joining the Rangers and an innings eater would be nice at the back end of the rotation. He has a career ERA of 3.57 which would obviously play well and wouldn’t have to be a long-term commitment.
