Mets and Brandon Nimmo agree to 8-year, $162 million deal – The Denver Post


A day after the end of winter meetings, Mets general manager Billy Eppler locks his starting center fielder into a long-term contract.

Brandon Nimmo and the New York Mets have agreed to an eight-year, $162 million contract, according to reports. The deal locks in Nimmo through the 2030 season and carries an AAV of $20.25 million.

The Mets also sign veteran reliever David Robertson to a one-year, $10 million deal.

The deals come on the heels of Eppler telling reporters he planned to ‘stay on the job’ after securing four pitchers in winter meetings – including World Series champion Justin Verlander – to bolster the roster’s depth. .

Last season, Nimmo played 151 games for the Mets, cutting .274/.367/.433.

Robertson played 37 games with the Chicago Cubs and National League champion Philadelphia Phillies last season. The right-handed veteran had a 2.40 ERA and struck out 81 in 63.2 innings pitched.

It’s a developing story.
