ORLANDO – Each and every day the league’s biggest superstars are signing contracts with teams, while the future of a reigning Cy Young award winner becomes progressively unclear.

When Jacob deGrom was asked where things stand with the Mets on his contract extension, his responses were loaded with uncertainty.

“We haven’t reached anything yet,” deGrom said. “So I don’t know what’s going to happen.”

The Mets ace pitched his final start of spring training on Saturday and it was flawless. DeGrom threw three no-hit innings and struck out five of his nine batters faced. His mechanics were firing on all cylinders and he said it was “the best he’s felt all spring.”

Andy Martino of SNY.tv reports that negotiations between deGrom and the Mets are ongoing, and there is “optimism in some corners” that a deal could be reached before the start of the regular season next Thursday. deGrom is believed to be seeking somewhere in the neighborhood of $150 million over five years. While he has already earned a record arbitration salary of $17 million for 2019, deGrom has made it no secret that he wants a long-term deal.

As effective as deGrom’s confidence is on the mound, the same cannot be said for the tenacity level of his own extension talks with the Mets.

10 days ago, deGrom was “optimistic” about reaching a long-term deal with the Mets. On Saturday, deGrom said his outlook on the situation getting resolved before Opening Day has changed.

“Probably not as (optimistic),” deGrom said. “We’ll just have to wait and see.”

DeGrom said it’s fair to say there’s still dialogue between his CAA agent, Jeff Berry, and Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen.

“But I don’t know where it’s going to end up," deGrom said.

In early January, deGrom and the Mets completed a record-breaking raise for the pitcher. The ace agreed to a $17 million, one-year contract – increasing his salary from the $7.4 million it was the year before. Then, deGrom and Berry created a March 28 deadline to finalize his contract extension so the pitcher does not get distracted from questions about the topic throughout the season.

Five days away from the established deadline, deGrom is not confident details will reach a resolution by Opening Day. He’s not even sure what time the undefined deadline begins or ends.

"I haven’t thought about that really,” deGrom said. “I haven’t thought about the exact time. I don’t even know Opening Day - I don’t know if it’s the day, right before the game, I don’t know what that is.”

What deGrom does know is that he wants to remain with the Mets. For now, he’s focused on his first-career Opening Day start. He’s excited to go head-to-head against three-time Cy Young award winner Max Scherzer. He looking forward to putting the team in a position to win.

The rest, he said, is out of his control.
