MLB hot stove: Mets, Wilson Ramos reportedly agree to two-year deal
The Mets have their starting catcher
The Mets are in agreement to sign free agent catcher Wilson Ramos, reports Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. The deal is for two years and $19.5 million and there is an option for a third year, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post.
Ramos, 31, was an All-Star last season, his second time earning the honor. He spent time with both the Rays and Phillies, hitting .306/.358/.487 (130 OPS+) with 22 doubles, 15 homers and 70 RBI. Now that his ACL injury is well in the rearview mirror, he's back to being one of the better catchers in baseball.
New general manager Brodie Van Wagenen has been very active in his first offseason with the Mets. Some thought the team needed to rebuild, instead he's added the likes of Ramos, Robinson Cano, Edwin Diaz and Jeurys Familia while removing some players who weren't quite working out in Queens.
