Mets and RHP Jacob deGrom avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $17 million contract.

It's a record raise in arbitration and also a record for a pitcher going through the arbitration process for the third time.

deGrom hit .164 in 67 AB last year. Ten singles and one double. He struck out 25 times. But he did draw four walks and drove in five runs. That seems to be okay, by pitchers' standards, because he actually gets a positive WAR from Fangraphs for his hitting exploits.

For deGrom and a few other pitchers, as a matter of curiosity, I've included the hitting metrics from Fangraphs.
