Mets GM Sandy Alderson said the team likely won't make another move in free agency after New York signed LHP Jason Vargas on Friday.
"With Jason's signing," Alderson said on Sunday, according to MLB.com's Anthony DiComo, "we're pretty much where we want to be. … I would be surprised, if not shocked, if somebody else walks into this clubhouse."
With Vargas, who signed a two-year, $16 million deal with incentives and a third-year option, the Mets' payroll stands at $152.6 million, which is approximately $2 million fewer than what it was at the beginning of last season.
The Mets also signed third baseman Todd Frazier, first baseman Adrian Gonzalez and outfielder Jay Bruce, and re-signed second baseman Asdrubal Cabrera in the offseason.
Last summer, the Mets shed $11.6 million from their payroll by trading away several veterans, including Bruce, Neil Walker, Lucas Duda and Addison Reed.
"We've come a long way from the trade deadline last year," Alderson said.
