Mets, Lindor in mega deal

Francisco Lindor has reportedly agreed to a 10-year, US$341-million contract with the New York Mets, making the shortstop the third highest paid player in Major League Baseball history, US media reported on Wednesday night. The 27-year-old Lindor’s deal trails only those of the Los Angeles Angels’ Mike Trout (US$426.5 million) and Los Angeles Dodgers’ Mookie Betts (US$365 million), American sports broadcaster ESPN reported. Trout signed his deal in March 2019 and Betts inked his with the Dodgers in July. Lindor, who set a deadline of MLB’s opening day yesterday to reach a deal, said he was prepared to become a free agent next winter. In January the Cleveland Indians traded Lindor and Carlos Carrasco to the Mets for Amed Rosario, Andres Gimenez, Josh Wolf and Isaiah Greene. In six major league seasons with the Indians, Lindor had a .285 batting average with 138 homers, 411 RBIs and 99 stolen bases.
