Mets reach arbitration deals with seven players, reports say

Mets reach arbitration deals with seven players, reports say

They hardly were superheroes last season, but the Dark Knight and Thor both have inked new deals for 2018.

The Mets also reportedly agreed to terms with right-handed reliever Jeurys Familia ($7.925 million), catcher Travis d'Arnaud ($3.475 million) and shortstop Wilmer Flores ($3.4 million). So, Matt Harvey and Noah Syndergaard will get raises for the 2018 season.

Injuries have been a bugaboo for Harvey since missing the entire 2014 season for Tommy John surgery, replacing the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

Harvey was once one of the most promising young pitchers in baseball, but injuries have done a number on him in recent years, prompting the Mets to shop the 28-year-old right-hander this offseason.

New points of interest are being added including the city and some new named areas on the west side of the map. This is in addition to unspecified quality-of-life improvements that are described as a "work-in-progress".

Harvey will enter a star-studded free-agent market after the 2018 season that includes Clayton Kershaw, Manny Machado, and fellow Scott Boras client Bryce Harper.

The Mets will need a resurgence from their rotation if they have any hope of rebounding from last season's disappointment, and on Friday, they avoided arbitration with three of their top starters, though Zack Wheeler appears to be heading to a hearing.

Syndergaard had a torn lat muscle and was limited to seven starts, going 1-2 with a 2.97 ERA. He will make $7.4 million, up from $4.05 million. Familia agreed to a $7.925 million deal after making $7.425 million a year ago. Hansel Robles also settled at $900,000.
