Pete Alonso, Mets agree to 2024 contract, avoid arbitration

NEW YORK – The Mets agreed to terms on a new one-year contract with Pete Alonso on Thursday, in what was a procedural necessity heading into his final season under team control.

Alonso, who was eligible for arbitration for the third and final time, agreed to a contract worth $20.5 million, according to a source. He earned $14.5 million through arbitration last season. The club did not confirm the financial terms of the contract.

This will be the final year the team has control over Alonso, who hit .217/.318/.504 with 46 home runs and 118 RBI last season. Although both sides have expressed interest in Alonso remaining at Met for years to come, there are no indications that the two sides are close to an extension. When asked specifically about the possibility of a long-term deal on Wednesday, President of Baseball Operations David Stearns responded:

“As a general practice, I tend not to discuss any contract negotiations with any particular player, and I will continue that practice. I will continue to say that Pete is a really good player. He's an important part of our organization. We're excited to have him here, and certainly hope we can have him here for a while.” Of time.

If Alonso hits free agency next offseason, the Mets could still re-sign him at that time.
