The Mets reached one-year settlements and avoided arbitration with eight players on Friday.

Among those at the top of the list were starting pitchers Matt Harvey, Noah Syndergaard and Jacob deGrom.


According to the New York Daily News, DeGrom's deal reportedly increased $3.4 million as he is expected to receive $7.4 million. DeGrom went 15-10 with a 3.53 ERA in 31 starts, and ranked second in the National League with 239 strikeouts and fifth with 201 1/3 innings, which was 81 more than any other New York pitcher. He can become a free agent after the 2020 season.

Report: Orioles, Machado will not settle before arbitration deadline

  Report: Orioles, Machado will not settle before arbitration deadline It appears like Manny Machado and the Baltimore Orioles will head to an arbitration hearing. The three-time All-Star and his team will not settle on a salary for 2018 prior to Friday's 1 p.m. ET deadline, according to a source of MLB.com's Mark Feinsand.

The Mets avoided arbitration and came to terms on 2018 salaries with Travis d’Arnaud, Noah Syndergaard , Matt Harvey , Jeurys Familia, Wilmer Flores, Jacob deGrom , AJ Ramos, and Hansel Robles.

They hardly were superheroes last season, but the Dark Knight and Thor both have inked new deals for 2018. The Mets stayed busy on Friday knocking out one-year settlements with several arbitration -eligible players , including starting pitchers Matt Harvey

Harvey agreed to a deal worth $5.6 million. Last year, he went 5-7 with a 6.70 ERA in 19 outings. However, he missed more than two months in the middle of the season as a result of an injury to the scapula bone in his right shoulder.

The Daily News also reported that Syndergaard received a hefty raise as his new deal is worth $2.9 million (compared to the $605,500 he earned last season). He went 1-2 with a 2.97 ERA but only started seven games due to a partially torn lat muscle.

Relievers Jeurys Familia, AJ Ramos and Hansel Robles, catcher Travis d'Arnaud and infielder Wilmer Flores also agreed to one-year contracts.

Donaldson: No recent extension talks with Blue Jays 'to my knowledge' .
Josh Donaldson wants to keep playing north of the border beyond 2018. Whether the Toronto Blue Jays will make that happen remains anyone's guess.The former MVP will draw a handsome salary this year, having avoided arbitration with the Blue Jays by signing a record $23-million deal last week. Still, questions about his long-term future in Toronto remain a hot topic since he's set to become a free agent at season's end, and Donaldson added a little more fuel to the fire Saturday when he revealed that the sides haven't had recent talks about a longer-term deal.
