Jeff Francoeur and the Mets avoided arbitration after the mid-season pickup signed a one-year, $5 million contract.
Meanwhile, relievers Sean Green and Pedro Feliciano also were able to work out deals for undisclosed sums to keep them on the roster for another season.
It’s a bit surprising the Mets kept Green, who showed some promised but faltered later in the season. He sported a 4.52 ERA and was known for blowing leads, bouncing around from setup man to mop-up duty.
Feliciano was much more solid, posting a 3.03 ERA. He was the workhorse of the bullpen pitching in a club record 88 relief appearances.
