Meet the Mets
Kodai Senga received three third place votes and three fourth place votes in the Cy Young balloting which placed him seventh for the award.
Senga has also reportedly expressed his desire to have Japanese star Yoshinobu Yamamoto as his teammate.
The organization has serious interest in Yamamoto but they are in competition with their crosstown rivals to land the talented righty.
While hunting for starting pitching, perhaps a former Yankee could help the rotation after a down year.
Brooks Raley is one of the few with a guaranteed spot in the bullpen and he owes his success to leaning heavily into analytics.
Around the National League East
Braves starter Spencer Strider came in fourth in the Cy Young voting with Blake Snell taking home the award.
Marlins hitting coach Brant Brown is reportedly heading west to sign with the Mariners.
Around Major League Baseball
Gerrit Cole was unanimously voted as the American League Cy Young award winner while Blake Snell secured 28 first place votes to take home the award in the National League.
With the pitch clock successfully reducing the time of games, MLB is now considering shortening the pitch clock even further.
