NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The New York Mets settled their last salary arbitration case, agreeing to a one-year contract with Lucas Duda worth $1,637,500.
The team announced the deal Wednesday night.
Duda hit .223 with 15 homers, 33 RBIs and 102 strikeouts in 318 at-bats last year. The first baseman-outfielder was sidelined from late June until late August because of a strained muscle between his ribs.
Eligible for arbitration for the first time, he had asked for a raise from $519,240 to $1.9 million and had been offered $1.35 million.
New York previously settled with Bobby Parnell, Daniel Murphy, Dillon Gee, Eric Young, Ike Davis and Ruben Tejada.
