Latest Check of 2020 Mets Payroll

Now that arbitration is out of the way, let’s take a look at the 2020 Mets payroll. Another major change is the clarity of Yoenis Cespedes’s contract restructuring. We now know he is guaranteed just $6 million (plus incentives), so that is the number we will go with right now.

Jacob deGrom: $25,500,000 (actual)
Noah Syndergaard: $9,700,000 (actual)
Steven Matz: $5,000,000 (actual)
Marcus Stroman: $12,000,000 (actual)
Michael Wacha: $3,000,000 (actual)
Rick Porcello: $10,000,000 (actual)

Jeurys Familia: $11,666,667 (actual)
Justin Wilson: $5,000,000 (actual)
Robert Gsellman: $1,200,000 (actual)
Seth Lugo: $2,000,000 (actual)
Edwin Diaz: $5,100,000 (actual)
Brad Brach: $825,000 (actual)
Dellin Betances: $10,500,000 (actual)

Wilson Ramos: $9.250,000 (actual)
Tomas Nido: $600,000 (est)

David Wright: $12,000,000 (actual)
Robinson Cano: $20,250,000 (actual)
Jed Lowrie: $11,500,000 (actual)
Amed Rosario: $600,000 (est)

J.D. Davis: $600,000 (est)

Yoenis Cespedes: $6,000,000 (actual)
Michael Conforto: $8,000,000 (actual)
Brandon Nimmo: $2,175,000 (actual)
Jeff McNeil: $600,000 (est)
Dominic Smith: $600,000 (est)
Jake Marisnek: $3,312,500 (actual)

The actual 2020 Mets payroll is $173,979,167. When you add in the estimated $3.6 million for pre-arbitration players, you get a grand total of 177,579,167. That is by far a Mets record. 

And the Mets may not be done. The Starling Marte talks are allegedly still ongoing, and there is word the Mets would still like to dump Jed Lowrie’s stupid salary, possibly by attaching a young player like Dominic Smith in a deal. We’ll see. Either way, the Mets are spending like they really want to contend. Whether they spent their money well remains to be seen.
