Mets Star First Baseman Turns Down Extension Offer From Club

QUEENS, NY: Per Joel Sherman of The New York Post, Pete Alonso turned down a contract extension from the Mets. The offer is said to be a 7-year, $158 million deal that would have taken him through his age 36 season.


Alonso, 29, is set to hit the free agent market post the 2024 season. Alonso has spent his entire 6-year career with the Mets. During his career, Alonso has slashed .249/.340/.524 with 201 home runs and has three All-Star appearances. The slugger is also a 2x Home Run Derby champion and took home Rookie of the Year honors in 2019.


Alonso’s 2024 season has been a Alonso classic as he’s slashing .220/.302/.454 with 9 home runs. The first baseman has a respectable .756 OPS to go along with his usual power numbers.


The news of Alonso declining the Mets offer comes at no shock as he is a client of agent Scott Boras. Boras’ clients are notoriously known for waiting for their big payday.


It’s certainly an interesting case for Alonso as his market could drastically decrease or increase depending on which way he decides to finish his season. Alonso will enter his age 30 season with a brand new contract.
