Pete Alonso (29, New York Mets), who has consistently shown top-level slugging ability since his major league debut, appears to have entered into negotiations for an ultra-long-term contract.
The U.S. Sports Illustrated (SI) reported on the 21st (Korean time) that the New York Mets and Alonso have begun negotiations on a contract extension.
According to this, both sides are in the position that they should sign an extension contract. However, the conditions are different. Alonso appears to have proposed a 10-year contract, while the New York Mets have proposed a shorter term.메이저놀이터
Alonso, who is in his fifth year in the major leagues, will be eligible to become a free agent (FA) player after the 2024 season. If you sign a contract this winter, the final year of applying for salary adjustment will be included.
Alonso debuted in the major leagues in 2019 at the age of 24. Relatively late age. This marks his first free agency since his age 30 season.
If the New York Mets sign Alonso to a 10-year contract this winter, it will cover his ages 30-39 seasons. We have no choice but to consider the decline in grades in our late 30s.
Of course, there is still one year left until he becomes a free agent. Contract negotiations are likely to continue until the middle of next season.
Alonso debuted in the Major League in 2019, and became the National League home run king with 53 home runs that year. Of course, the Rookie of the Year award belongs to Alonso.
Since then, Alonso has hit 37 home runs in the 2021 season and 40 home runs last year. He is also tied for second in the National League with 45 home runs through the 21st this season.
A player with solid slugging ability. However, there is a problem with his batting accuracy as his career batting average is only 0.253. This season, his on-base percentage has also dropped significantly to 0.325.
The New York Mets, who became a seller ahead of the trade deadline despite investing an astronomical amount of money, are paying attention to what kind of contract they will give Alonso this time.
