Travis d'Arnaud and Wilmer Flores both agreed to $3.4 million deals.

Harvey is only the second Mets player to avoid arbitration with suspended reliever Jenrry Mejia previously agreeing to a deal worth $1.729 million The Mets will not have to pay Mejia in 2018 unless he is reinstated after being banned from Major League Baseball.

Harvey got a slight raise, despite having suffered through a disastrous 2017 season, when he finished with a 6.70 ERA in 19 games after coming back from thoracic outlet syndrome surgery.

In the bullpen, Jeurys Familia and the team settled at $7.9 million, AJ Ramos at $9.25 million and Hansel Robles for $900,000. He also was suspended for three games in May after he failed to show up for a game. In 17 starts, he had a 5.21 ERA. Syndergaard will earn $2.975 million, compared to $605,500 last season.

While teams were interested in Harvey this offseason, the Mets chose to keep him after manager Mickey Callaway and pitching coach Dave Eiland vouched for him. Duda, who will turn 32 on February 3, broke into the major with the Mets back in 2010 and has 138 home runs and 405 RBIs in 812 career games.
