The New York Mets have avoided arbitration with pitcher John Maine.
They settled in between what both wanted. The Mets initial offer was for $2.2 million. Maine wanted $3 million. The settlement was for $2.6 million.
Great job getting this done.
Maine was definitely relieved as well. He was quoted from Mets.com as saying, “Now I just get ready for Spring Training.”
Pedro Feliciano remains the lone member of Mets arbitration-eligible players.
