MLB: Mets, Kevin Pillar can’t reach contract and is now a free agent

This Thursday, November 4, it was announced that New York Mets and Kevin Pillar did not reach an agreement in contract negotiation and the player becomes free agent. According to various reports, neither Pillar nor the organization exercised the corresponding options and will now seek to perform within another team for the 2022 Season of MLB.

Kevin Pillar is a new member of free agency this off season, as both he and the New York Mets declined the contract option, according to MLB Network journalist Jon Heyman.

Pillar held a $ 2.9 million player option for the 2022 MLB season, which did not include a termination clause, while the Mets chose a $ 6.4 million club option with a $ 1.4 million greenback clause.

The outfielder who will now seek to sign with another organization during the free agency period, had a 2021 interruption in his work with the Metropolitans as a result of a face injury, product of a ball.

Kevin Pillar saw action in 124 games in MLB 2021 with the New York Mets, a team he came to from the Colorado Rockies; in which he had a .231 batting average, with 15 home runs and 47 RBIs.

I joined ‘Al Bat’ in September 2020, starting a new work stage in which I always seek to give my best version, in addition to leaving a significant mark on the passage of women in an industry that is managed mainly by men. Degree in Communication Sciences and Techniques from the Inter-American University for Development (UNID), I am a specialist in sports journalism, writing and editing texts, I have three years of experience covering sports, especially baseball from the Mexican Baseball League (LMB ), Liga Mexicana del Pacífico (LMP) and MLB. I was an intern at the LMB Leones de Yucatán Baseball Club, with whom I attended the 2019 Rey Series. I have done work for social networks such as the coverage of the 2019-2020 edition of the LMP Final for ‘Con Las Bases Llenas’. I am constantly updated on social media, SEO, Google positioning, writing, digital journalism, as well as the place of women in the sports industry. Originally from Mérida, Yucatán, my first approach to baseball was in a game of Lions of Yucatán, in the ‘Kukulcán Álamo’ Park, in 2015; and that changed my life completely. The ‘Melenudos’ are the team of my loves and the greatest passion I have in this sport. Although I dedicate myself to baseball most of the time, my sport, in the beginning, was (and still is) soccer. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich won my heart and fans from ‘minute one’ and I am fortunate to have already seen them play live. Clearly, I am a fan of Cristiano Ronaldo and Manuel Neuer.
