Shreve was brought aboard on a minor-league pact this winter and pitched his way onto the team thanks to a 2.25 ERA and 10 strikeouts across eight appearances in Grapefruit League action. Shreve struggled to a 6.39 ERA in 25 appearances with the Mets last season, but posted a 3.20 mark in 57 outings with the Pirates in 2021 and owns a 3.87 ERA in 317 big-league appearances.
