Another big name off the board. The Mets have signed Justin Verlander to a two-year (plus an option) contract at $43.3 million yearly. The option is a ‘vesting option’, likely on innings pitched in the first two seasons.
The contract aligns with what FanGraphs guessed (two years at $40 million yearly). The vesting option is a good deal for the team. If he pitches a good number of innings, he'll be worth another year.
Would you have been happy if the Jays signed Verlander to this contact?
