Mets Re-Sign Yoenis Cespedes to Three-Year Deal

AP

When we started the off-season, the notion that was given by the Mets was that Yoenis Cespedes was a goner, and they weren’t going to be able to compete with the offers that other teams would throw out there.

What a difference a few months makes.

Per multiple reports, the Mets and Cespedes have officially agreed to a three-year deal that will pay him $75 million with an opt-out clause after the first year of the deal. Cespedes’ deal will also include a no-trade clause, with all of this pending he passes his physical.

Cespedes of course came over to the Mets originally from the Tigers on July 31st. He was a big part in leading the Mets to the World Series. The White Sox and the Washington Nationals were also reportedly interested in the outfielder.

If Cespedes opts-out, he will make $27.5 million the 1st year. If he stays after the first year, it becomes $25 million a year, also per sources.

Cespedes slashed .291/.328/.542 with 35 home runs and 105 runs batted in over the course of 159 total games in 2015.
