As first reported by Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the New York Mets are expected to re-sign free agent outfielder Yoenis Cespedes to a 4-year, $110 million contract. The deal includes a full no-trade clause, per SNY.
The Mets remained optimistic that they could re-sign the All-Star prior to the start of MLB's winter meetings next week. In recent days Washington Nationals GM Mike Rizzo intimated that he was willing to reshuffle his outfield to make room for the power-hitting veteran.
Last season Cespedes batted .280 with a .354 OBP to go along with 31 homers and 86 RBIs.
