'Jake told me he wants to come back' by Post Sports+ editor
First, the formality: Mets ace Jacob deGrom became a free agent on Monday, as promised, by declining a player option worth $30.5 million for 2023.
So, now, the important part: Is he coming back to Queens?
Mets general manager Billy Eppler, while in Las Vegas at the GM meetings, struck an optimistic tone on Tuesday, saying he believes deGrom is interested in extending his borderline-Hall-of-Fame-track stay with the Amazin's and the two sides had "made a pact" to stay in touch.
But that's the boss talking -- and posturing. What's the perspective from inside the Mets clubhouse?
In an exclusive recent conversation, Mets left fielder Mark Canha told Post Sports+ he was "hopeful" of a deGrom reunion.
"Jake told me he wants to come back, too, and he really likes it here, too," Canha relayed to The Post's Mike Puma in his members-only Inside the Mets newsletter. "I think Jake and Max [Scherzer] and [Chris] Bassitt have a really good friendship they have developed over this year and good professional relationship, too."
Check out the full interview with Canha here. It also covers Canha's love for New York, his offseason plans in Arizona, his insights into Buck Showalter's leadership and a Chris Bassitt free agency prediction.
