PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — The New York Mets renewed All-Star pitcher Jacob deGrom's contract for $607,000 Friday after the sides could not agree on a deal for the 2016 season.

DeGrom, who helped the Mets reach the World Series for the first time since 2000, gets a 9 percent raise from his earnings last year, when he had a $531,875 salary plus a $25,000 bonus for winning the 2014 NL Rookie of the Year award, a total of $556,875.
