Also, Mets ace Jacob deGrom said he intends to exercise his right to opt out of his contract to become a free agent after the season.
He would give up a $33.5 million salary for 2023, part of a deal that carries a $32.5 million club option for 2024.
The 33-year-old right-hander, a two-time Cy Young Award winner, says he wants to remain with the Mets.
