The Mets and Lucas Duda have agreed to a one-year deal worth $1.6375 million, avoiding arbitration (Sherman).
In 100 games in 2013, Duda hit .223 with a .352 OBP. He hit 16 doubles, 15 home runs and drove in 33 RBI. He posted a 118 OPS+ in 384 plate appearances (where 100 is league average). He saw time in left field and at first base.
The Mets will not go to arbitration with any of their eligible players, as they signed them all — Ruben Tejada, Ike Davis, Eric Young Jr., Bobby Parnell, Daniel Murphy, Dillon Gee and Duda – to one-year deals.
