The Mets are "now in excellent financial health," reports Jon Heyman of FanCred.
Heyman cites multiple investments as part of the reason for the Mets' improved financial well-being.
The Mets entered the season with a payroll of $150.5 million, which is 11th in baseball.
Their Opening Day payroll dropped to $84.9 million in 2014 before beginning to steadily rise in the years after. It was $101.3 million in 2015 as they emerged from their rebuild, $135.1 million in 2016, and $154.4 million in 2017.
According to Cot's Baseball Contracts, the Mets have $92.5 million already committed to payroll for the 2019 season.
