Pete Alonso , who is on his way to another season with the Mets, will receive a significant raise this year as the first baseman and the team avoided arbitration and agreed to a $14.5 million contract before Friday’s deadline.
Alonso earned $7.4 million a year ago in the first year of arbitration and is not due to hit free agency until after the 2024 season.
He led the team in most offensive categories, including homers (40), RBIs (131) and OPS (.869).
Luis Guillorme and Tomas Nido also agreed to agreements to avoid arbitration, as did right-handers Drew Smith, Elieser Hernandez and Jeff Brigham.
Jeff McNeil did not agree to a deal, although the team and McNeil can continue to negotiate before a hearing.
