Michael Conforto Declines Qualifying Offer, Becomes Free Agent


Former New York Mets’ outfielder Michael Conforto has officially declined the qualifying offer, which would have paid him more than $18 million to come back on a one-year deal. Instead, he and Scott Boras will test the waters in free agency. 

This is according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

Last year was a disaster for Conforto, as he would admit. After he hit .322 in 2020, Conforto dropped to .232 with 14 homers and 55 RBI. He had 33 homers and 92 RBI just two years ago. 

It seems like Michael is headed for greener pastures, maybe even in Seattle, but time will tell.
