Meet the Mets

The Mets and three of their arbitration eligible players agreed to one-year deals yesterday: Daniel Murphy, Dillon Gee, and Ruben Tejada. They also traded figures with Lucas Duda and Jenrry Mejia.

While Murphy is under control for one more season, it appears the second baseman will be allowed to test free agency after 2015 as the Mets have no long term contract plans for him. Meanwhile, multiple teams are still pursuing a trade for Dillon Gee.

What do the Mets have in Noah Syndergaard? Ken Rosenthal writes that there are mixed reports about the young righty. According to the man himself, Noah says he didn't deserve a call-up in 2014 and thinks he matured a lot thanks to the experience.

Pitching prospect Brandon Welch was hit with a 50 game suspension yesterday for a drug of abuse.

A source revealed the fees for the camp led by Mike Barwis at the Mets' spring facility.

If the Marlins signed Max Scherzer or James Shields, it would change the team's image.
