Michael Conforto: Declines qualifying offer
Conforto declined the Mets' qualifying offer Monday and will head to free agency, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Conforto likely had more to think about than most players who are tendered a qualifying offer, as he hit free agency at a poor time. He posted a career-best 158 wRC+ in 2020, but his 106 wRC+ in 2021 represented his worst mark since 2016. He also missed over a month with a strained hamstring. Ordinarily, a player who's been a well-above-average hitter over the course of his career who hits free agency while still in his 20s would be in line for a big payday, but teams may be a bit more hesitant about Conforto given his unimpressive 2021 campaign....

Michael Conforto: Gets qualifying offer
The Mets extended a qualifying offer to Conforto on Saturday, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Conforto will have a little less than two weeks to decide whether to accept the one-year, $18.4 million offer from the Mets or test the open market. The 28-year-old outfielder is coming off his worst season in the majors by fWAR (0.8), so it's conceivable that he could take the qualifying offer in an effort to re-establish his value in 2022. He has a career .356 OBP and 124 wRC+, so given his age, there should be quite a few suitors if he were to decline the qualifying offer.... See More ... See Less

Mets' Michael Conforto: First three-hit game since July
Conforto went 3-for-5 and drove in a pair of runs Thursday in a 12-3 win over the Marlins.
Conforto doubled and added two singles for his first three-hit performance since July 19. His RBI single in the third inning made it a 2-2 game, and his run-scoring base hit in the fourth gave the Mets a 6-3 cushion. It's been a disappointing 2021 for Conforto, who is hitting .228 with 13 home runs and a .718 OPS in 471 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Michael Conforto: Swats 13th homer
Conforto went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 3-2 loss to the Marlins.
The outfielder took Elieser Hernandez deep in the fourth inning to open the scoring on the night. It's been a rough season for Conforto, who's had trouble staying healthy and been unable to find a groove at the plate when he was, and Wednesday's blast ended a 16-game homer drought for the 28-year-old. With only a handful of games left on the calendar, the pending free agent is slashing .223/.339/.371 -- the lowest SLG of his career -- with 13 homers and 51 RBI through 122 contests.... See More ...

Conforto went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 2-1 extra-inning loss to the Marlins.
His seventh-inning blast ended Sandy Alcantara's shutout bid, but it was one of the few bright spots on the night for the Mets. Conforto is doing his best to keep his squad in the playoff picture, slashing .296/.367/.556 over the last seven games with nine RBI, six runs and two of his 12 homers on the year.... See More ...

Mets' Michael Conforto: Socks 11th homer
Conforto went 3-for-7 with a home run, two runs scored and three RBI across both games of Saturday's doubleheader split against the Nationals.
He blasted a two-run shot off Wander Suero in the fourth inning of the matinee, giving the Mets a 9-0 lead in game that they eventually won 11-9 in extra innings. Conforto has endured a rough season, but he seems to be gearing up for a sprint to the finish line, batting .286 (6-for-21) with three of his 11 homers on the year over his last seven games....

Mets' Michael Conforto: Swats 10th homer
Conforto went 1-for-1 with a walk and a two-run home run in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Marlins.
The 28-year-old has only three hits in his last 20 at-bats, but two of them have left the yard and he has a 5:6 BB:K over that stretch. Conforto continues to tease a turnaround but hasn't been able to find consistent success at the plate this season, leaving him with a poor .217/.340/.368 slash line, 10 homers and 36 RBI through 97 games....

Mets' Michael Conforto: Smacks homer in win
Conforto went 1-for-1 with a three-run homer in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Nationals.
Conforto took a seat against left-hander Sean Nolin, but he was summoned off the bench to face right-handed reliever Mason Thompson. With Jeff McNeil and Kevin Pillar on base, Conforto knocked Thompson's very first offering out of the park to erase a one-run deficit and put the Mets ahead for good. The long ball marked the outfielder's first career pinch-hit home run. The soon-to-be free agent is batting .276 with three home runs in August, well above his season mark of .218.... See More ...
