Mets, batting champ Jeff McNeil reach $50M extension

National League batting champion Jeff McNeil and the New York Mets agreed Friday to a four-year, $50 million contract extension, sources familiar with the deal told ESPN, ensuring one of the team’s core players will stay in Queens as the Mets look to win their first World Series since 1986. McNeil, who turns 31 a week after Opening Day, was arranged to go to an arbitration trial with the Mets, where he was requesting $7.75 million and they offered $6.25 million.

New York Mets, Tommy Pham agree to 1-year, $6M deal

Outfielder Tommy Pham and the New York Mets agreed on a one-year, $6 million deal Wednesday, sources told ESPN, continuing the team’s offseason bonanza and pushing the Mets’ record payroll past the $450 million mark. Pham, 34, could serve as a right-handed complement to Daniel Vogelbach as designated hitter for the Mets. He also played 134 games in the outfield last year for Cincinnati and Boston, hitting .236/.312/.374 with 17 home runs and 63 RBIs. Pham’s most impactful hit in 2022 might have been with an open hand rather than a bat. In late May, while with the Reds, Pham approached San Francisco Giants outfielder Joc Pederson during pregame warmups […]
