Mets give deGrom more than $9M raise to $17M
NL Cy Young Award winner Jacob deGrom agreed Friday to a $17 million, one-year contract, a record raise for an arbitration-eligible player from his $ 7.4 million salary. Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard avoided arbitration and agreed to a $6 million deal, doubling his salary.
DeGrom led the majors with a 1.70 ERA in 217 innings and was selected to his second All-Star Game. Syndergaard went 13-4 with a 3.03 ERA in 25 starts last season.
