The right-hander fits the same mold as the other young, hard-throwing relievers the Mets have picked up this season: His fastball sits in the mid-to-high 90s and occasionally touches triple digits, especially after the Dodgers streamlined his mechanics. New York also acquired Stephen Nogosek, Gerson Bautista and Jamie Callahan from the Red Sox for Addison Reed before the non-waiver Trade Deadline and flipped Lucas Duda for Drew Smith before that.
