Jon Niese agrees to a 5 Year, $25.5 Million extension


Mets starter Jon Niese has agreed to a five-year, $25.5 million extension, with team options for 2017 and 2018 that could push the total value to $46 million, according to NJ.com. The deal is not official because there is a pending physical.

Negotiations have been ongoing for most of the week. Niese, 25, posted a 4.40 ERA in 2011, but team officials are confident in his ability to actualize his talent in the coming years.

This deal serves purposes for both sides. The Mets lock up the pitcher on their starting staff with the most potential, and create cost certainty in the process. And Niese receives a life-altering paycheck.
