The one-year salary for the qualifying offer this year is $18.9 million. DiComo noted that despite the offer, Stroman is expected to decline and test the free-agent market. The Mets would receive draft-pick compensation if that were to happen.

Stroman did not appear in the 2020 season – he was diagnosed with a calf tear before the season started and then opted out of playing due to coronavirus concerns.

Stroman was traded to the Mets three days prior to the 2019 trade deadline. With the Mets, he allowed 25 earned runs in 59.2 innings (3.77 ERA), one-hundredth of a run higher than his career ERA of 3.76.

Stroman has yet to post back-to-back seasons with a sub-4.00 ERA, but his 2019 ERA (66 earned runs/184.1 innings) of 3.22 was his lowest since 2017.
