$341 Million Dollars: NY Mets Shortstop Gets Massive Ten Year Contract!

After weeks of negotiations the New York Mets and All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor agreed to a 10-year contract extension worth $341 million.

The contract is the largest in franchise history, obliterating the eight-year deal worth $138 million that David Wright received before the 2013 season.

Including this year’s salary, in his last season of arbitration eligibility, Lindor will receive $362.3 million over 11 years, but deferrals will likely lower the present-day value.

The $341 million is $1 million more than Fernando Tatis Jr. received this offseason in his 14-year deal from the Padres. Lindor’s deal includes a $21 million signing bonus and a partial no-trade clause.

The Mets had previously offered Lindor a 10-year contract worth $325 million. Lindor countered with a 12-year proposal worth $385 million, according to a source, that would have eclipsed the deal Mookie Betts received from the Dodgers last summer.
