How Jacob deGrom, Trea Turner markets could shake out for Mets | Baseball Night in NY
MLB GMs weigh bigger bets in Las Vegas than those at tables
In the hallways and meeting rooms of Resorts World, baseball general managers are starting to weigh bigger bets than the wagers placed on tables and machines in the casino downstairs. A free-agent market that will be defined by Aaron Judge, Trea Turner, Dansby Swanson and Xander Bogaerts began to take shape when the New York Mets reached a record deal for a reliever, a $102 million, five-year contract with closer Edwin Díaz subject to a successful physical. With a five-year labor contract in place following the end of a 99-day lockout in March, baseball’s major league economic rules are in place through the 2026 season, perhaps leading to a more normally paced free-agent market.
