The 2022 season was the New York Mets' 61st season in Major League Baseball, their 14th at Citi Field, and their second under majority owner Steve Cohen.

On December 2, 2021, Commissioner of Baseball Rob Manfred announced a lockout of players, following expiration of the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) between the league and the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA). On March 10, 2022, the MLB and MLBPA agreed to a new collective bargaining agreement, thus ending the lockout. Opening Day was played on April 7.[1] Although MLB previously announced that several series would be cancelled due to the lockout, the agreement provides for a 162-game season, with originally canceled games to be made up via doubleheaders.[2]

On September 19, the Mets clinched their first playoff appearance since 2016.[3] It was their 10th playoff berth in franchise history.

After leading the National League East for most of the season (at one point, the team had a 10+12 game lead in the division), the Mets endured an underwhelming September. A resurgent Atlanta Braves team, which also swept the Mets in the final weekend of the regular season, won the NL East, leaving the Mets to settle with the first Wild Card spot.

On October 4, the Mets earned their 100th win of the season, the team's fourth 100-win season in franchise history and their first since 1988. They ended the season 101–61, the second most wins in a season in franchise history behind only the 1986 team.

The Mets lost in three games to the San Diego Padres in the Wild Card Series. The Mets are the first team in MLB history to produce only one hit in a winner-take-all playoff game. In addition to being the eighteenth 100-win team to not win a postseaosn series, they became the first 100+ win team to fail to reach the Division Series since it was put into effect in 1995.

Offseason

Lockout

Main article: 2021–22 Major League Baseball lockout

The expiration of the league's collective bargaining agreement (CBA) with the Major League Baseball Players Association occurred on December 1, 2021 with no new agreement in place.[4] As a result, the team owners voted unanimously to lockout the players stopping all free agency and trades.[5][6]

The parties came to an agreement on a new CBA on March 10, 2022.[7]

Rule changes

Pursuant to the new CBA, several new rules were instituted for the 2022 season. The National League will adopt the designated hitter full-time, a draft lottery will be implemented, the postseason will expand from ten teams to twelve, and advertising patches will appear on player uniforms and helmets for the first time.[8][9]

Season notes

April

On April 29, during a game against the Philadelphia Phillies, the Mets pitchers threw a combined no-hitter, the first in the team's history. With 159 pitches, starting pitcher Tylor Megill, along with relief pitchers Drew Smith, Joely Rodríguez, Seth Lugo and closer Edwin Díaz held batters to a total of 6 walks and 13 strikeouts. This milestone is the second no-hitter in franchise history (the first was a solo effort in 2012 by Johan Santana against the St. Louis Cardinals) and the 17th combined no-hitter in MLB history.[20] This was the second no-hitter as a manager for Buck Showalter, previously as the manager of the New York Yankees when Jim Abbott pitched a no-hitter during the 1993 season.

May

The Mets made franchise history with their biggest ninth-inning comeback in 25 years in a win over the Philadelphia Phillies on May 5. Down 7–1 entering the ninth inning, the Mets rallied with seven runs in the top of the inning to defeat the Phillies 8–7.[21]
