The Nationals have reached an agreement on an extension with manager Davey Martinez that keeps him in Washington beyond the 2021 season.
Mets outfielder Michael Conforto, whose regular season is over due to a hamstring injury, spoke Friday about the return of Sandy Alderson (pending MLB approval of Steve Cohen) and the potential of signing a contract extension. It was with Alderson at the helm that Conforto entered the organization and was eventually called up straight from Double-A during the 2015 season. With Alderson back in the fold as team president if Cohen's ownership is approved, one of the first items on the agenda could be exploring a contract extension for Conforto, who will hit free agency after the 2021 season if he isn't locked up before then.
