Four Mets Settle To Avoid Arbitration

Four more Mets avoided the arbitration process and settled their contracts for the 2014 season. Daniel Murphy, Dillon Gee, Bobby Parnell and Eric Young all agreed to terms. Still unsigned is Lucas Duda.

Murphy, who hit .286 with 13 homers and 78 RBI, settled on a contract for $5.7 million, a substantial raise from the $2.95 million. Murphy will be arbitration eligible after this year and will become a free agent following the 2015 season.

Gee, who made just over $527-thousand last year, settled on $3.625 million after winning 13 games and working 199 innings.

Gee submitted a proposal for $4.05 million to which the Mets countered at $3.2 million.

Parnell, who is recovering from neck surgery, will earn $3.7 million this year, up from $1.7 million.

Finally, outfielder Eric Young, agreed to a $1.85 million contract.

  1. Everything is coming together. If Drew falls into their laps this season could be interesting, very interesting.

    • If Drew falls into their lap it stabilizes ss. It doesn’t put them in the playoffs. Their lineup still sucks

      • Strong words.

        I like Q but he is not really a starter.

        If he is available we should get him.

        But I agree. I think we are done for the year.

        We will probably get cast offs late in spring
