     UNDATED (AP) - NL Cy Young Award winner Jacob deGrom and the New York Mets have agreed to a $17 million, one-year contract, a record raise for an arbitration-eligible player from his $7.4 million salary.
 
     The deal was agreed to today before the pitcher and team were to exchange proposed salaries in arbitration. It also set a mark for a pitcher eligible for arbitration for the third time.
 
     DeGrom led the majors with a 1.70 ERA in 217 innings and was selected to his second All-Star Game. He was fifth in MVP voting after receiving little run support on a fourth-place squad. The right-hander went 10-9 with 269 strikeouts in 32 remarkably consistent starts for a team that finished 77-85. The 30-year-old can become a free agent after the 2020 season if the Mets don't sign their electric ace to a multiyear contract by then.

     - Zach Britton and the New York Yankees have finalized a contract that guarantees the reliever $39 million over three seasons and could be worth $53 million for four years. Britton gets $13 million in each of the next two seasons under the deal announced today. New York has a $13 million option for 2021 and a $14 million option for 2022 and must decide within three days of the 2020 World series whether to exercise both. If the team option is declined, Britton has until the fifth day after the 2020 World Series to exercise a $13 million player option for 2021. The 31-year-old left-hander was acquired by the Yankees from Baltimore on July 24 and had a 2.88 ERA and three saves in 25 appearances for New York.
 
     - Free-agent second baseman D.J. LeMahieu and the Yankees are nearing agreement on a two-year contract, according to a person familiar with the negotiations. The 30-year-old Gold Glove winner spent the previous eight seasons with Colorado at hitter-friendly Coors Field and won the NL batting title in 2016 with a .348 average.
 
     -The Los Angeles Dodgers have reacquired catcher Russell Martin in a trade with Toronto, a day after losing free agent Yasmani Grandal to Milwaukee. Los Angeles obtained the 35-year-old Canadian from the Blue Jays for minor leaguers Andrew Sopko, a right-hander, and Ronny Brito, an infielder. Toronto is sending cash to offset some of the $20 million Martin is owed in the final season of his contract. The four-time All-Star was with the Dodgers from 2006-10 and helped lead Los Angeles to three playoff appearances.
 
     - The Marlins avoided arbitration with J.T. Realmuto by agreeing to a $5.9 million deal with the All-Star catcher, who has been mentioned in numerous trade scenarios this offseason. Realmuto hit .277 with 21 homers and 74 RBIS last season, when he made $2.9 million. The deal reached today includes bonuses of $50,000 each for All-Star selection, Gold Glove Award and Silver Slugger Award. The 27-year-old made his first All-Star team and won his first Silver Slugger Award in 2018.
 
     - The Arizona Diamondbacks have avoided arbitration with Robbie Ray and Andrew Chafin by agreeing to one-year deals with the left-handed pitchers. Ray gets $6.05 million, a raise of $2.1 million, and Chafin receives $1,945,000, a raise of $750,000.
 
     - Astros third baseman Alex Bregman will be limited at the start of spring training after arthroscopic surgery to remove loose bodies from his right elbow. The team says Dr. Thomas Mehlhoff operated Friday in Houston and that it expects the 24-year-old will be ready to play before the season opener on March 28 at Tampa Bay. Bregman was a first-time All-Star last year, homered in the game and was selected MVP of the American League's win.
 
     - Giants left-hander Will Smith reached agreement on a $4,225,000 contract with the San Francisco Giants to avoid salary arbitration. Smith was a key member of the bullpen in a lost season for San Francisco after he came back in 2018 from a year sidelined following Tommy John surgery.

     CHICAGO (AP) - Kicker Cody Parkey is staying off social medial after his missed field goal at the end of the Chicago Bears' 16-15 wild-card loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. Parkey told NBC's "Today" show this morning that he feels "worse than anybody about missing that kick." He also says "football is what I do; it's not who I am."
 
     The Bears won the NFC North in their first season under coach Matt Nagy after four straight last-place finishes. Parkey thought he hit a "pretty good kick" and his 43-yard attempt would go in even as it hit the left upright and crossbar. He wasn't aware Philadelphia's Treyvon Hester touched it with his fingertips. Parkey also expressed appreciation for his teammates' support.

     UNDATED (AP) - Power winger Rick Nash has decided to retire from the NHL at 34 because of unresolved symptoms from a concussion he suffered in March. Agent Joe Resnick says Nash decided under advice from doctors that the risk of brain injury was far too great if he returned to play hockey.

The first overall draft pick in 2002, he played 15 seasons: nine with the Columbus Blue Jackets, five-plus with the New York Rangers and then finished with the Boston Bruins.

Antennas around the arena tracked the players and the puck through radio frequencies and relayed the data to a suite where league and Players' Association executives and representatives from 20 teams and various technology firms, sports betting companies and TV rights holders were watching.
