Marcus Stroman is Biggest Winner in Mets Arbitration

Marcus Stroman was the biggest winner among the Mets’ arbitration-eligible players.

The right-hander, who can become a free agent next offseason, received a contract worth $12 million for 2020, as all nine of the Mets’ arbitration-eligible players reached agreement with the club.

Stroman, who arrived from the Blue Jays at the trade deadline, went 4-2 with a 3.77 ERA in 11 starts for the Mets last season, when he earned $7.4 million. Stroman was acquired in large part as insurance against Zack Wheeler leaving through free agency. Last month, Wheeler signed a five-year contract with the Phillies worth $118 million.
