PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — Unable to reach an agreement, the New York Mets renewed the contract of pitcher Noah Syndergaard for a major league salary of $605,500.
With 1 year, 149 days of major league service, Syndergaard almost certainly will be eligible for salary arbitration next winter.
The hard-throwing 24-year-old right-hander was 14-9 with a 2.60 ERA last season, striking out 218 in 183 2/3 innings. He earned $503,375.
His new contract has a minor league salary of $267,688, should he be sent down.
New York announced agreements Friday for its 20-other players not yet eligible for arbitration, including left-hander Steven Matz and outfielders Michael Conforto and Brandon Nimmo.
