Jacob deGrom had his contract renewed, making him the only non-arbitration eligible player with the Mets unable to agree on the value a new deal, according to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com.
Since deGrom is under team control and not yet eligible for arbitration, it is the Mets' right to set the value of his contract.
The Mets have not opened up discussions about a possible long-term deal with deGrom, though he has expressed a willingness to sign one if he were approached.
GM Sandy Alderson was asked on Mets Hot Stove on Thursday night if he will look to lock up any of the Mets young starting pitchers in the near future.
"There is nothing on the horizon to be concerned about," Alderson responded.
DeGrom, 27, will make $607,500 this season, a slight increase from his $556, 875 salary last season. He is eligible for arbitration in 2018 and can become a free agent after the 2020 season, when he will be 32 years old.
Brodie Van Wagenen, who is deGrom's agent, released the following statement regarding the matter:
