The New York Mets and shortstop Francisco Lindor agreed to a one-year, $22.3-million deal for the 2021 season to avoid arbitration, a source told Mark Feinsand of MLB.com.

The monetary value is reportedly the fourth largest in MLB history.

New York acquired Lindor and pitcher Carlos Carrasco in a blockbuster trade with the Cleveland Indians last week.

Lindor is eligible to become a free agent at the end of the season. The four-time All-Star has said a contract extension with the Mets has to make sense for both sides.

The 27-year-old Puerto Rican has won two Silver Sluggers and two Gold Gloves while slashing .285/.346/.488 with 138 home runs and 99 steals over six seasons with the Indians.
