Mets Resign Yoenis Cespedes
The New York Mets have inked their prize LF Yoenis Cespedes to a 4 Year Deal worth $110 MIL or $27.5 MIL per year.
The deal comes with a full no Trade Clause.
Cespedes, now 30, will see his pact take him through age 34.
If you factor in last year’s one year deal, the big slugger will still take home $135 MIL on his years of full service with New York.
For the Mets, this is a sure fire sign they will spend the money to contend as this puts them to a projected $150 MIL for 2017, although they will likely trade Jay Bruce away to save his $13 MIL in 2017.
Our own Hunter Stokes said earlier today that New York should not pay more than $27 MIL AAV and more than 4 years to the Cuban star and it turns out they did just about that.
Cespedes clubbed 31 HRS and added 86, with a .864 OPS RBI in 2016 despite missing almost a month of injury time..
