Steve Cohen admits Francisco Lindor contract uncertainty: ‘Hard to know’

Mets owner Steve Cohen indicated Monday the team has not yet reached contract extensions with star shortstop Francisco Lindor and centerfielder Michael Conforto.

“We’re talking to all of them, it’s hard to know exactly how they’re all going to turn out,” Cohen said during a team Q&A. “It takes two people to sign a contract, not one. We’re focused on Francisco and Michael.”

Lindor has said he would only agree to an extension before Opening Day on Thursday, or else he will enter free agency next winter.

Cohen and Lindor, who could command beyond $300 million, dined together Saturday to talk a potential extension.

The Mets acquired Lindor in a blockbuster trade with the Cleveland Indians this past offseason.
