Mets, Chris Bassitt headed to arbitration hearing after no deal

The New York Mets and starting pitcher Chris Bassitt failed to reach an agreement on a contract ahead of Tuesday’s arbitration deadline.

Bassitt asked for $9 million and the Mets offered $8.3 million, according to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman.

This means Bassitt and the Mets will go to an arbitration hearing to determine his 2022 salary figure.


The 33-year-old Bassitt was acquired from the Oakland Athletics earlier this month. He was 12-4 with a 3.15 ERA in 27 starts last season.

The Mets did come to agreements with their other arbitration-eligible players. Pete Alonso got $7.4 million, Edwin Díaz $10.2 million, Brandon Nimmo $7 million, Dominic Smith $3.95 million, Jeff McNeil $3 million, J.D. Davis $2.76 million, Luis Guillorme $875,000, Tomas Nido $890,000, Seth Lugo $3,925,000, Trevor Williams $3.9 million, Miguel Castro $2.62 million, Joey Lucchesi $1.15 million and Drew Smith $750,000.
