Consider Trevor May among the players excited to have Steve Cohen as an employer.

The right-hander, who recently inked a two-year, $15.5-million contract with the New York Mets, explained the new owner is one of the reasons why he chose to sign with the club in free agency.

"One of the biggest things is just the buzz around Steve and the purchase of the team," May said during an introductory Zoom call on Thursday, according to SNY's Steve Gelbs. "The excitement of all the changes happening, my immediate reaction was wanting to be a part of something like that."

May's excitement follows similar feelings from Marcus Stroman, who accepted an $18.9-million qualifying offer to rejoin the Mets in November instead of testing free agency.

The deep-pocketed Cohen, who purchased the Mets for $2.4 billion in November, has gotten a lot of attention after setting lofty championship goals for the organization while emphasizing fielding a winning product.

The Mets have signed May and Stroman while also being connected to several of MLB's top free agents, including Trevor Bauer, George Springer, and J.T. Realmuto, since Cohen took over.

They've also reportedly shown interest in acquiring Cleveland Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor.
