Mets owner Steve Cohen doesnt want to see ace pitcher Jacob deGrom depart this offseason.In an interview with The New York Post on Saturday before the Mets-Rockies game at Citi Field, Cohen indicated that the organization will do whatever it takes to keep deGrom, who is expected to exercise the opt-out clause in his contract following the season.Listen, he certainly has the right to do that. We love Jacob Daniel Vogelbach Jersey, and I think hes the best pitcher in baseball, Cohen told The Post. Well do whatever we can to make sure he stays https://www.nymteamstore.com/Hideo_Nomo_Jersey. But its his decision, not ours.DeGrom has stated numerous times in 2022 that he plans to decline his $30.5 million player option, thus testing the free agent waters.Despite missing the first four months of the season with a shoulder injury, deGrom has looked strong since his return, posting a 3-1 record, 2.15 ERA and 46 strikeouts across 29.1 innings.Cohen also told The Post that while the Mets havent yet talked about a new contract with deGrom, given it would be a distraction during the season, they intend on making a serious play to bring him back this winter.
