Top Mets News

  • Mets' Joey Lucchesi: Moves to Mets

    Lucchesi was traded from the Padres to the Mets on Monday as part of a three-team deal headlined by Joe Musgrove moving from Pittsburgh to San Diego, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Lucchesi was an unexciting but productive starter for the Padres in his first two big-league seasons, posting a 4.14 ERA that he backed up with a 24.6 percent strikeout rate and 8.0 percent walk rate. He suddenly fell out of favor last season, spending most of the season at the team's alternate training site while allowing five runs in just 5.2 innings of work. If he can get back to his previous form, he'll be a useful option to round out the back of the Mets' rotation, but it's hard to be too confident in him after his poor 2020 campaign.

  • Mets' Francisco Lindor: No arbitration necessary

    Lindor and the Mets reached a one-year, $22.3 million deal Friday, avoiding arbitration, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

    Lindor was acquired by the Mets on Jan. 7, and he won't require an arbiter with his new club after agreeing to terms on a one-year deal Friday. With a deal in place for his final year of arbitration, the two sides will now presumably begin working on a long-term deal for the star shortstop. Lindor's marks were down during the abbreviated 2020 season, and he posted a career-worst .750 OPS with eight home runs and 27 RBI while appearing in all 60 games.

  • Mets' Michael Conforto: Agrees to deal with Mets

    Conforto (hamstring) and the Mets reached a one-year, $12.25 million deal Friday, avoiding, arbitration, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

    Conforto's 2020 season ended slightly early due to hamstring tightness, but he'll avoid arbitration with the Mets heading into 2021. He had a strong season last year, slashing .322/.412/.515 with nine home runs and three stolen bases over 54 games.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Avoids arbitration with Mets

    Nimmo signed a one-year, $4.7 million contract with the Mets on Friday to avoid arbitration, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    The 27-year-old appeared in only 69 games during 2019, but he played 55 of 60 games last season and had a .280/.404/.484 slash line with eight homers. Nimmo is expected to start in center field for the Mets in 2021, barring any additional additions in free agency.

  • Mets' Miguel Castro: Avoids arbitration

    Castro signed a one-year, $1.6875 million contract with the Mets on Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

    The 26-year-old was acquired from the Orioles at the August trade deadline and allowed four runs on 11 hits with a 14:8 K:BB during his brief time with the Mets. Castro should enter spring training in a middle relief role for New York.

  • Mets' Seth Lugo: Reaches terms with Mets

    Lugo signed a one-year, $2.925 million contract with the Mets on Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

    The 31-year-old gets a raise for 2021 after posting a career-worst 5.15 ERA last season. Lugo was shifted between the bullpen and starting rotation last season with poor results. The right-hander has found more success in the majors as a reliever, so the Mets could leave him in the bullpen for a high-leverage role in 2021.

  • Mets' Edwin Diaz: Agrees to one-year deal

    Diaz and the Mets avoided arbitration Friday by agreeing to a one-year, $7 million deal, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

    Diaz didn't manage to keep the closer job all season last year thanks to some early-season struggles, but his year-end numbers represented quite an impressive bounceback from his poor 2019 campaign. He finished the year with a career-low 1.75 ERA and a career-high 45.5 percent strikeout rate, presumably setting himself up quite well to be the Mets' closer again in 2021.

  • Mets' Robert Gsellman: Avoids arbitration

    Gsellman (ribs) and the Mets avoided arbitration Friday by agreeing to a one-year, $1.3 million deal, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    Gsellman will get just a small raise over the $1.23 million he made last season. It's hard to argue he deserved a bigger one, as he allowed 15 runs in 14 innings last year while posting a 9:8 K:BB before being shut down with a fractured rib.

  • Mets' Dominic Smith: Avoids arbitration with Mets

    Smith signed a one-year, $2.55 million deal with the Mets on Friday to avoid arbitration, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

    The 25-year-old was arguably the Mets' best bat in 2020 with a .316/.377/.616 slash line, 10 homers, 21 doubles and 42 RBI in 199 plate appearances, and he's now officially under contract for 2021. Smith's major-league outlook was a question mark not too long ago, but he has a .937 OPS in 139 games over the past two seasons and enters spring training in position to begin the season in a starting role.

  • Mets' Jose Martinez: Signs with Mets

    Martinez signed a minor-league contract with the Mets on Thursday which will pay him $1 million if he makes the big-league roster, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

    Unless the universal designated hitter winds up returning for the 2021 season, it's hard to see Martinez earning much playing time in New York. Even if it does return, Pete Alonso and Dominic Smith would seem to have the first base and DH spots very well covered. Both Smith and Martinez can play the outfield corners, but neither does so very convincingly. It's also not clear whether or not Martinez still has what it takes at the plate, as he struggled to an awful .182/.265/.295 slash line in 98 plate appearances for the Rays and Cubs last season. Still, this represents a low-risk investment for the Mets in a player who has been a solidly above-average hitter at times in his career.
