According to Jon Heyman, Cespedes will receive $25 million per season and could hit $27.5 million if he decides to opt-out of his contract.
New York remarkably put the icing on the cake at the trade deadline last season by acquiring Cespedes from the Detroit Tigers in exchange for two minor leaguers. Cespedes was undeniably a huge X Factor during the last few months of the regular season for the New York Mets, hitting a .287/.337/.604 slash with 17 home runs and 44 RBIs in a span of 57 games.
