Mets lock up batting champion McNeil on $50M, 4-year deal

NEW YORK (AP) - Batting champion Jeff McNeil and the New York Mets finalized a $50 million, four-year contract Tuesday that avoided a salary arbitration hearing.

The move was the latest by the high-spending Mets. who added pitcher Justin Verlander and David Robertson, catcher Omar Narváez and outfielder Tommy Pham, and also reached a $162 million, eight-year deal to keep outfielder Brandon Nimmo.

"It starts with ownership," McNeil said at a news conference. "They want to put a winner on the field. It's been pretty amazing to see what that's looked like the last few years."
