New York Mets star first baseman Pete Alonso said that he is open to discussing a contract extension.
“Eventually, yeah, we’ll see,” Alonso told Greg Joyce of The New York Post on Wednesday. “I love New York. It’s a special place. I’ve really enjoyed my time playing and for me I think we really — me and my family — have embraced the city. We love it here. But again, we don’t know [what the future holds].”
Alonso is set to become a free agent after the 2024 season. He avoided arbitration on Tuesday by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $7.4 million, but a long-term extension was not discussed, according to The Post.
Alonso, 27, has hit 256/.347/.542 with 106 home runs and 249 RBI in 370 games over three seasons with the team. He broke the rookie home run record in 2019 with 53.
