Marcus Stroman will be back in Queens through 2021 after accepting the team’s qualifying offer of $18.9 million.
The day after new owner Steve Cohen and team president Sandy Alderson held a press conference, the starting pitcher took to Twitter to confirm he will remain a member of the New York Mets organization.
Cohen responded to Stroman with a tweet of his own.
Stroman was acquired by the Mets in 2019 as part of a trade with the Toronto Blue Jays in which Toronto received prospects Simeon Woods Richardson and Anthony Kay.
In his time with the Mets, he has posted a 4-2 record with a 3.77 ERA.
Stroman brings a reliable arm to what was an otherwise shaky starting rotation in 2020. Bolstered with Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard, and the possibility of adding Trevor Bauer, would make New York’s starting pitchers something to fear again.
