Which Team Will Pete Alonso Play for in 2024?
Fact Checked by Pat McLoone

Some might say “typical New York Mets.” Some might say it could be the right move. Either way, veteran first baseman Pete Alonso is the subject of a hotly debated topic here in New York.

So, EmpireStakes.com – your source for New York gambling – wanted to join the discussion of a potential Alonso trade this offseason. Here, we offer hypothetical odds on which team he will play for in 2024.

Alonso, who has one more year of arbitration on his contract, is set to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2024 season.

The Face of the Franchise

Entering tonight’s three-game home series finale against the Texas Rangers, the 28-year-old from Tampa is having an up and down year. He is batting a mediocre .219 but has 39 home runs (one shy of 40 for the second straight year), 96 RBI and 73 runs scored. His on-base percentage (OBP) is .323, he is slugging is at .515 and his OPS is .839.

For his career, Alonso is batting .253 with 185 home runs (averaging 40 per in four full seasons), 476 RBI and 383 runs scored. The three-time All-Star played in only 57 games in 2020.

The Mets (60-73) are a distant 9.5 games back of the third and final wild card spot in the National League. It’s been a wildly disappointing baseball season in the Big Apple. BetMGM New York makes both the Mets and Yankees gigantic +50000 long shots to win the pennant.

According to MLB.com Wednesday morning, the Mets and Alonso’s camp have held initial discussions about a potential contract extension, but both have “differing ideas on the type of contract the 28-year-old should command.”

With the trade deadline deals of veteran pitchers Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander earlier this season, the Mets have taken a vastly different approach to their future.

The question is, will Alonso be a part of it?
