The left-handed hitting backstop is set to have a base salary of $7 million next season.
Narvaez suffered a calf strain during the first week of the 2023 season, which limited him to 49 games behind the plate. He ended up slashing .211/.283/.297 with two home runs and seven RBI.
Having Narvaez back for the 2024, assuming the team doesn’t look to trade him, gives the Mets a solid backup to Francisco Alvarez, who burst onto the scene in 2023 and appears to be locked in as the Mets’ No. 1 catcher for years to come.
Alvarez appeared in 123 games as a rookie, slugging 25 home runs with 63 RBI.
