The Mets have settled on salaries for the 2020 season with all nine of their arbitration-eligible players. Those settlements on one-year contracts, per Anthony DiComo, are:

  • Marcus Stroman for $12 million,
  • Noah Syndergaard for $9.7 million,
  • Michael Conforto for $8 million,
  • Edwin Diaz for $5.1 million,
  • Steven Matz for $5 million,
  • Jake Marisnick for $3.3125 million,
  • Brandon Nimmo for $2.175 million,
  • Seth Lugo for $2 million, and
  • Robert Gsellman for $1.225 million.

Marisnick is the only player from that group who didn’t play for the Mets at all in 2019. And for the most part, the agreed-upon salaries came pretty close to publicly-available projections. And of those nine players, only Stroman and Marisnick are set to hit free agency after this season. Syndergaard, Conforto, and Matz are under team control through the 2021 season, while Diaz, Lugo, Gsellman, and Nimmo are under team control through the 2022 season. For now, though, the group will make up just over one-third of the Mets’ 26-man roster this year.
