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!
