Cespedes Suffers Ankle Fractures in Ranch Accident

Given the headline I was hoping to he’d slipped on some spilled salad dressing. But per Tweet from Anthony DiComo:

Cespedes suffered a “violent fall” and twisted his right ankle in a hole, per GM Brodie Van Wagenen. He was not riding a horse, the GM said, but it was a non-baseball related activity. Van Wagenen did not elaborate further, and did not offer a timeline for Cespedes’ recovery.

That’s a lot less funny than I’d hoped.

Mets & deGrom agree on 5 year, $137.5m extension

The Mets agreed to an extension with Cy Young Award winner Jacob deGrom on Tuesday morning that will be for five years and $137.5 million, The Post confirmed. The deal, pending a physical, was completed two days before deGrom was planning to shut down talks once the regular season starts Thursday. DeGrom will have a full no-trade clause and can opt out of the deal in 2022, while the contract finishes in 2023.

Sounds like this buys out both arb years, and at least 2 years of free agency.  deGrom can’t hit the open market until his age 34 season if he takes his opt out.
