Throughout the 2024 season, the New York Mets will grapple with a significant uncertainty: the future of their superstar first baseman, Pete Alonso.

The looming question is whether Alonso will continue with the Mets beyond 2024 or seek opportunities elsewhere. Currently, the answer remains elusive as Alonso’s impending free agency adds complexity to the situation. Speculation abounds regarding a possible contract extension with the Mets or the potential for a trade.

However, it appears probable that Alonso will commence the season with the Mets under his existing deal before entering free agency.

Mets president of baseball operations, David Stearns, has seemingly indicated that an extension is unlikely, suggesting that top-tier players often opt for free agency, especially when represented by agents like Scott Boras.

Alonso’s stature as one of baseball’s premier sluggers further intensifies the uncertainty. Any scenario where Alonso departs, whether through a trade or free agency, would be a significant blow to the team. As the 2024 season progresses, discussions surrounding Alonso’s contract status will undoubtedly dominate the narrative.
