By: Mike Phillips | December 14, 2019 The New York Mets are now officially under the luxury tax thanks to their renegotiated contract with outfielder Yoenis Cespedes. The deal came after the Mets filed a grievance against Cespedes for the circumstances of his broken ankle, which came on his ranch in Florida despite the fact he was supposed to be rehabbing previous heel surgeries.

Brad Brach's return should be first step in fortifying New York Mets' bullpen

By: Mike Phillips | December 7, 2019 A day after trading for Jake Marisnick, the New York Mets made another minor move by re-signing relief pitcher Brad Brach. The veteran righty, who the Mets picked up after he was waived by the Cubs in August, will earn $850,000 this season, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. Free-agent RHP Brad Brach signs with #Mets, one year, $850K with a player option for $1.25M in 2021, sources tell The Athletic.
