Jacob DeGrom Signs 5-Year, $137.5 Million Deal With Mets

Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom has agreed to a new deal with the team.  It’s reportedly a 5-year deal worth $137.5 million deal.

The 30-year-old reigning National League Cy Young Award winner is cashing in on his incredible 2018 season.  The deal includes a club option that could make the deal worth $170 million.


DeGrom, 30, was set to make $17 million this season and was arbitration eligible in 2020. The extension replaces his current deal and nullifies arbitration. The contract includes an opt-out after 2022 and a club option for 2024, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan. If the option is picked up, the total money for the six-year deal is $170 million, according to sources. The deal has a full no-trade clause.

It’s definitely time to celebrate! Perhaps he will take his teammates to Rick’s Cabaret and throw a huge party. Nice!
