There is a lot of interest in Aaron Loup's successor

With Aaron Loup departing for Los Angeles, the Mets will have a significant hole to fill. Loup was the greatest pitcher in a very good bullpen, and he will be sorely missed. However, I believe the deal he received was excessively hefty, and the Mets were correct not to match it.

While rumours about the New York Mets have been few to begin the summer, the New York Post’s Mike Puma reports that the Mets are interested in Minnesota Twins left-hander Taylor Rogers.

As Puma notes, Rogers is entering his last year of arbitration and will be due to get a raise from the $6 million dollars he got last season. With the Twins in rebuilding mode, they might want to save money.

While this Mets rumor might seem boring, Rogers would be a great get for the Mets.

With the Twins in rebuild mode, the Mets have a chance to acquire a really solid and underrated reliever for very cheap. They could acquire Rogers on his own, or maybe in a package with someone like Byron Buxton or Jorge Polanco.

Rogers went 2-4 with a 3.35 ERA in 40 appearances for the Twins this season. He struck out an absurd 13.2 batters per nine while walking just 1.8/9. He strikes out a ton, walks few, and only allowed 0.9 HR/9.

Rogers was an all-star for the first time in 2021 and deservingly so. However, he’s been good for awhile. In 2018 he posted a 2.63 ERA in 72 appearances. In 2019 he had a 2.61 ERA in 60 appearances, and served as the Twins closer with 30 saves.

In Rogers’ down year in 2020, he put up a 4.05 ERA in 20 innings. However, he still struck out 10.8/9 and walked just 1.8/9. All the stats show Rogers is a really solid reliever who the Mets would be fortunate to add.

Rogers would not be acquired to be the closer, he’d be the primary left-hander out of what should be a really solid bullpen with guys like Edwin Diaz, Seth Lugo, and Trevor May working in the back end of the bullpen alongside Rogers. While Rogers has been really solid in his career against both hands, he’s even better against lefties, which makes sense. In 2021, he held left-handed hitters to a .170/.185/.340 slash line. He struck out 29 and only walked one left hander all year in 55 plate appearances against him.

Aaron Loup had a career year and I’m sure will do great things in Anaheim. However, Rogers is not a bad consolation prize at all, and with his large sample size of success, I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s better than Loup is this coming season. This Met rumor might not be super exciting, Rogers is a great add.
