The New York Mets and pitcher Sean Manaea have agreed to terms on a two year, $28 million deal, per Jon Heyman. The deal includes an opt-out after year one.

Manaea, who turns 32 in February, is coming off a pair of disappointing seasons. Acquired by the San Diego Padres from the Oakland A’s prior to the 2022 season, Manaea put up a 4.96 ERA in 158 innings in his one year with the Padres. Signed to a one year deal by San Francisco for the 2023 season, Manaea put up a 4.44 ERA in 10 starts and 27 relief appearances. Over the past two seasons, he has accumulated a -0.5 bWAR.

The lefthander did have the highest K/9 rate of his career in 2023, and he put up a 3.2 bWAR in 2021. Still, his getting a higher AAV compared to 2023 on a multi-year deal, with an opt-out to boot, is surprising.
