As far as deGrom’s desire to remain a Met, Eppler says he believes there is interest there on the ace pitcher’s part.

As Eppler also revealed, the Mets had several conversations with deGrom’s representatives leading up to the two-time Cy Young Award winner’s decision to opt out of his contract. Per Eppler, both sides made a pact to stay in touch throughout the offseason.
