bullpen is set to include a very familiar face — longtime reliever Jeurys Familia.Familia reached agreement on a $30 million http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-joe-jimenez-jersey , three-year deal late Wednesday night with the team that traded him away last summer. The contract won’t be complete until he passes a physical.The 29-year-old righty will join a Mets bullpen that recently added major league saves leader Edwin Diaz in a trade with Seattle that also netted longtime All-Star second baseman Robinson Cano, a move made by new general manager Brodie Van Wagenen.Before leaving the winter meetings Thursday, Van Wagenen said the Mets liked Familia because of his “age, performance, repertoire and comfort being able to handle our market.” The GM said he also thought Familia would be a good influence on Diaz.Familia had spent his entire career with New York before being traded to Oakland last July. This move likely means Familia will slide back into a setup role, where he flourished as a rookie in 2014.Familia was a combined 8-6 with 18 saves in 24 chances and a 3.13 ERA for the Mets and A’s last season. He has 123 career saves for the Mets, who signed him at age 17.Craig Kimbrel, Andrew Miller, Adam Ottavino and David Robertson are among the other relievers on the free-agent market. Van Wagenen said the Mets would like to add a lefty but didn’t anticipate it being a high-priced one.“Would we play on multiple, high-end arms in the bullpen?” he said. “I don’t think that’s part of our strategy at this point.”The Mets Alan Trammell Jersey , looking to bounce back from consecutive losing seasons, are hoping for a quick turnaround with Van Wagenen in charge. They still want to upgrade all over the diamond, and he said they made progress at the meetings.“I know we wanted to be busy, we were,” he said.Familia posted 43 saves in 2015 when the Mets made it to the World Series. He led the majors with a franchise-record 51 saves the following year and was an All-Star, again helping New York reach the playoffs.Familia served a 15-game suspension at the start of 2017 for violating Major League Baseball’s domestic violence policy. Later that year, he had a blood clot that required surgery and finished 2-2 with a 4.38 ERA and six saves in 26 games.Last season, he was 4-4 with a 2.88 ERA and 17 saves in 21 chances with the Mets. He struck out 43 and walked 14 in 40 appearances covering 40 2/3 innings.The Mets got two minor leaguers from Oakland for Familia, acquiring Triple-A righty Bobby Wahl and Class A third baseman Will Toffey, and $1 million in international signing bonus pool allotment.Working mostly as a setup man for A’s closer Blake Treinen http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-joe-jimenez-jersey , Familia was 4-2 with one save and a 3.45 ERA in 30 games as Oakland earned an AL wild card.Notes: The Mets picked RHP Kyle Dowdy from Cleveland in the Rule 5 draft. The 25-year-old was a combined 9-12 with a 5.15 ERA in the minors for Detroit and the Indians last season. Van Wagenen said Dowdy can throw fastballs in the upper 90s mph and good breaking balls, and can start or relieve. CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland’s rock ‘n’ roll roots will be on display for the 2019 All-Star Game.Inspired by the city’s deep musical history, the team unveiled the logo for next year’s game — a red-white-and-blue guitar with a body bordered with baseball stitching.The blending of baseball and music is a not-so-subtle reminder to the rest of the country that Cleveland rocks.The Indians are hosting the annual mid-season event on July 9 for a record sixth time. And next year’s game coincides with the 25th anniversary of Progressive Field, which was known as Jacobs Field when it hosted the 1997 game.Owner Paul Dolan, MLB Deputy Commissioner Tony Petitti, Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson and Indians manager Terry Francona, All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor and first-base coach Sandy Alomar, who hit the game-winning home run for the American League in ’97, attended Tuesday’s ceremony that officially begins the countdown to next year’s game.Plans for the logo began shortly after the team was awarded the game.“We ask them what do they want to do with their mission and what they wanted to do was celebrate Cleveland as the birthplace and spiritual home of rock and roll,” said Anne Occi Lance Parrish Jersey , MLB’s vice president of design, who has been involved in creating All-Star logos for 28 years. “They wanted to talk us through the game and the experience and how the idea of baseball and rock and roll go together within the central part of Cleveland culture.”Occi said one of the biggest challenges in designing a logo that can be used across a variety of platforms — from merchandise to uniform patches to being painted on the field.She’s especially proud of the 2019 logo, which she described as “unique.”It’s certainly not divisive.Under pressure from MLB and others, the Indians will no longer wear the contentious Chief Wahoo on their caps and jerseys starting next season. And while there has been speculation that Cleveland conceded to the move in order to host the All-Star Game, the team has insisted the timing was just coincidental.Dolan said there was no discussion about Chief Wahoo in designing the All-Star logo.“That wasn’t even on our radar,” he said. “One, we did this a long time ago. The typical All-Star logo is the skyline of the city, maybe with the ballpark in the background, and we said we would like to do something different and we would like to draw on music as being a theme and that was the extent of our instruction.”Cleveland, which also hosted All-Star Games in 1935 http://www.tigersfanproshop.com/authentic-joe-jimenez-jersey , 1954, 1963 and 1981, has long been considered the birthplace of rock after local disc jockey Alan Freed coined the term “rock and roll.” The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame opened one year after Jacobs Field, and the two structures have been linked to the city’s downtown rebirth.The Indians and MLB officials have met with the Rock Hall about being incorporated into festivities around next year’s game.“You can see from the logo what we think the tie-in should be in Cleveland,” Petitti said. “We try to do something unique in every market we’re in, so music is what you can expect to see in 2019.”
