The New York Mets were expected to make the big leap after being acquired by billionaire Steve Cohen in 2021; however, the Queens Mets have had mediocre seasons for the hype they have generated and this 2024 looks like they will not contend for the World Series.

The focus of the Metropolitans seems to be to rely on their young players and develop them to become the future of the organization, such as Brett Batty, Francisco Álvarez, Luisangel Acuña, and the injured Ronny Mauricio, plus veterans Francisco Lindor, Pete Alonso, among others.


Now, a veteran ballplayer is added to the roster with plenty of experience, according to information from MLB Network’s Jon Heyman, the Mets have signed outfielder/designated hitter J.D. Martinez to a one-year, $12 million contract.


Martinez played last season for the Los Angeles Dodgers, with whom he also signed a one-year deal. He played 113 games and batted for .271 with 33 homers and 103 RBIs, being elected to the All-Star, his best year since the 2019 season.

In total, he has been elected to 6 All-Star Games, has won 3 Silver Bats, and was champion of the 2018 World Series with the Boston Red Sox, a season in which he was also fourth in the MVP voting.
