The Mets have reached agreements with relievers Addison Reed, Carlos Torres, and Josh Edgin, avoiding arbitration with all three players. Reed will make $5.3 million, while Torres will make $1.05 million, and Edgin will make $625,000. All three players received modest raises from their respective 2015 salaries of $4.875 million, $582,125, and $520,625. Reed was in his second year of arbitration, while Torres and Edgin were in their first.

Of this trio, Reed was the only one to earn a spot on the Mets' postseason roster, which he got by virtue of a dominant September run. After he was traded to the Mets at the end of August, he recorded a 1.17 ERA in 17 games. Torres had a lackluster season, with a 4.68 ERA in 59 games, though he had a 3.53 FIP. Edgin missed the entire season after undergoing Tommy John surgery. He fared well in 27.1 innings with the Mets in 2014, though, as he had a 1.32 ERA and 2.69 FIP.
