The ransom of ‘polar bears’ skyrocketing… Trade ahead of free agency? Negotiations for extension contract with NYM ‘failed once’

From the first season of his debut, he shot 53 home runs and won the title of ‘Rookie of the Year’, making a splendid debut, and at the end of the 2024 season, ‘Polar Bear’ Pete Alonso (New York The possibility of a trade for the Mets was raised.

Alonso was nominated by the Mets with the 64th overall pick in the second round of the 2016 Major League Baseball Draft and stepped onto the big league stage in 2019. In the first year of his debut, Alonso played in 161 games and recorded 155 hits, 53 homers, 120 RBIs, 103 runs, a batting average of 0.260, OPS of 0.941, and made a splendid debut by winning the title of Rookie of the Year along with the Home Run King.

His sophistication is a little off, but Alonso’s ‘power’ is certain. Alonso hit 16 homers in 57 games in 2020, when the shortened season was held, and the following year, in 152 games, 147 hits, 37 homers, 94 RBIs, 81 runs, and a batting average of 0.262 OPS of 0.863 continued to perform well, and the impact of the first season of his debut was not ‘shiny’. properly proved that

Alonso flew like crazy last year. He played in 160 games, with 162 hits, 40 home runs, 131 RBIs, and 95 runs batting average of 0.271 OPS of 0.870. Although he did not exceed 53 homers in his first season of debut, he spent a virtually ‘career high’ season by changing most of the batting indicators such as hits, RBIs, and batting average.

The refinement has gone down a bit this year, but the power is still there. After the 2024 season, Alonso, who obtains FA qualification, has a batting average of 0.219 in 125 games, but is raising his value by recording 100 hits, 39 homers, 96 RBIs, 73 runs, and an OPS of 0.838. In the midst of this, the Mets recently offered Alonso a contract extension. However, as the two sides disagreed, they were unable to reach an agreement on the extension of the contract, and the possibility of a trade was raised.

‘’ said on the 31st (Korean time), “Pete Alonso has been one of the Mets’ signature players since his debut in 2019. But even if the 2024 season opens, will this slugger still be in New York?” “It is expected that his annual salary will be in the tens of millions of dollars when he finishes. Sources say the Mets have discussed a contract extension with Alonso, but the two sides appear to have different ideas about the type of contract.”

It is not easy to predict at this point the value of Alonso, who drew 185 arches in 655 games in his major league career 5 seasons before the game on the 31st. However, ‘’ predicts that Alonso, who is about to acquire free agency, will hold about $ 21 million (about 27.7 billion won) in the 2024 season. Considering this, Alonso is likely to want a contract worth $30 million per year (approximately 39.6 billion won). But it’s clear that the Mets’ offer didn’t win Alonso’s heart.

“The Mets made an offer that wasn’t insulting, but wasn’t enough to convince Alonso to give up free agency,” said, citing sources. He added, however, that “the Mets could explore a trade possibility in the coming months.” The main reason for this background is that it is impossible to predict what kind of power the Mets will form in the 2024 season.토토사이트

Prior to this season, the Mets spent an astronomical amount of money to build a ‘winning history’, such as forming a one-two punch for the Cy Young Award. However, the results after opening the lid were very disappointing, and the Mets parted ways with Max Scherzer (now Texas Rangers) and Justin Verlander (now Houston Astros) prior to the August 2 trade deadline, which the Mets won the 2024 season. This is because after hearing that he was not aiming for the trade, he gave up his right to refuse trade and left.

‘’ said, “If the Mets don’t build a closer relationship with Alonso this offseason, the Mets can let Alonso go without risking losing him for a compensatory draft pick.” “The Cubs were the clubs that talked to Alonso ahead of the trade deadline this year. Considering the lack of first basemen in the free agent market this year, more teams are likely to jump in for Alonso,” hinting at the possibility of a trade, one club said. When asked if there was a chance Alonso could be traded, the executive added, “Of course.”
