The New York Mets rewarded Jeff McNeil with a four-year, $50 million deal after he won the National League batting title in 2022.
McNeil could have become a free agent after the 2024 season.
"It starts with ownership. They want to put a winner on the field and it's been pretty amazing to see what the Mets look like the last few years," he said. "I want to be a part of that."
McNeil's contract calls for a $6.25 million salary this year, $10.25 million in 2024 and $15.75 million in each of the following two seasons. The Mets have a $15.75 million option for 2027 with a $2 million buyout, a season that if exercised would make the agreement worth $63.75 million over five years.
