Trade Rumors and Contract Status

As a rookie last season, Josh Smoker is pretty much under Mets control for the foreseeable future. He’s eligible for arbitration after the 2018 season, and would become a free agent after the 2021 season.

Seeing as how he’s still relatively new to the bigs, odds are Smoker stays put with the organization for the time being. Of course, like with any player, things can always change in terms of potential trades. While unlikely, another team could be willing to make Sandy an offer he can’t refuse.

If the Mets are unable to lock down another lefty this offseason, it’s likely Smoker makes the roster in 2017. As mentioned previously, if Smoker is able to get lefties out, and keep righties at bay, his 2016 run with the Mets could very well continue for even longer.
