A day after the World Series ended, the Mets wasted no time spending big money on the best closer in baseball.
Star closer Diaz and the New York Mets are in agreement on a five-year, $102 million contract, according to reports. The contract includes a full no-trade clause.
The deal is the largest contract ever for a reliever. It also includes a team option for 2028, which would make the contract six years, $122 million.
Diaz had a 1.31 ERA last season for the Mets. He recorded 32 saves and struck out 118 batters out of 235 he faced.
