As all teams do when their season ends, the Mets will hold organizational meetings this week to set an offseason plan.
But one area that won't require much work is their starting rotation, which is likely to look like this next year: Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, Marcus Stroman, Steven Matz and a fifth starter yet to be acquired.
The July acquisition of Stroman was made with the intention of replacing either Wheeler or Syndergaard in 2020. The Mets and Wheeler's agent discussed parameters for a contract extension in July, and did not come close to an agreement, according to sources.
