Potential relievers Mets may target to replace Jeurys Familia

MILWAUKEE — With Jeurys Familia likely to miss “several months,” the Mets need to shore up their bullpen. It is not an ideal time to make a trade and there aren’t that many reliable, veteran relievers available, but here is a look at some possibilities.

INTERNAL ARMS THEY WILL CONSIDER

Kevin McGowan, RHP in Triple-A

Logan Taylor, RHP in Triple-A

Corey Taylor, RHP in Double-A

EXTERNAL BIG TICKET RELIEVERS BEING DANGLED

David Robertson, White Sox

The White Sox closer is said to have the Mets on his no-trade clause.

Kelvin Herrera, Royals

The Mets would reportedly be competing with their division rival Nationals for this closer.

The Rays closer is also drawing interest from the Nationals as well

OTHER RELIEVERS WHO MAY BE OPTIONS BUT COSTLY AND UNLIKELY

Erasmo Ramirez, Tampa Bay

The Rays will ask for a lot of prospects back for this set-up man.

Joakim Soria, Kansas City

Expensive veteran arm, but the Royals could be selling.

Chris Young, Kansas City

If the Royals are selling, it could be a good reunion for the Mets.

Jeremy Jeffress, Texas

Jeffress is one of the pitchers the Mets have had talks about in the past.

Hunter Strickland, San Francisco

Without Madison Bumgarner, the Giants could be selling sooner than later, but it will cost a lot.

Jim Johnson, Atlanta

The Braves have been willing to take Mets prospects for veterans before.

Tony Watson, Pittsburgh

If the Pirates decide to sell eventually, maybe the two teams can overcome the Jon Niese deal.

Ryan Madson, Oakland

If the A’s decide to sell, Madson could be a good set-up man for the Mets.
