Arbitration Eligibles: New York Mets

The Mets are next in our arbitration eligibles series

Pelfrey will be tendered a contract after his strong 2010, unless the Boras client signs an extension.  He owns a 4.34 career ERA with 43 wins, which should be enough to get him more than $3MM.  Pagan and Dickey were a couple of bright spots in the Mets' season, and both will be back next year.  In Dickey's case, interest in a multiyear deal appears mutual

Green missed most of the season with a torn rib cage muscle and a stress fracture in a rib, so he could be retained for a modest raise on top of this year's $975K salary.  Maine is operating from a $3.3MM base, and made only nine starts for the Mets before succumbing to a shoulder injury that eventually required surgery.  Even at no raise, he's a likely non-tender.  Maine would hit the free agent market before his 30th birthday.
