- November 18, 1994: Paul Byrd was traded by the Cleveland Indians with a player to be named later, Jerry Dipoto, and Dave Mlicki to the New York Mets for Jeromy Burnitz and Joe Roa. The Cleveland Indians sent Jesus Azuaje (minors) (December 6, 1994) to the New York Mets to complete the trade.
- December 7, 1994: Jarvis Brown was signed as a Free Agent with the New York Mets.
Although the Mets failed to finish above .500 for the fourth consecutive season, their second-place finish was the highest they had placed since 1990.
After three and a half seasons, the Mets parted ways with Bobby Bonilla. The former All-Star turned lightning rod for fan criticism was dealt to the Baltimore Orioles at the trade deadline. Shortly thereafter, the Mets traded their other big acquisition from the infamous 1991-92 offseason and sent pitcher Bret Saberhagen to the Colorado Rockies.
1995 saw the emergence of Rico Brogna], to that point a backup infielder, as a major contributor to the Mets lineup. Installed as the team's first baseman, Brogna led the team with a .289 average while recording 22 home runs and 79 RBI. Second baseman Jeff Kent continued to provide power as he once again reached the 20-home run mark. Jose Vizcaino led the team in hits and posted a .287 average. As far as starting pitching went, there was not as much positive to say. Bobby Jones' 10 wins led the team and Dave Mlicki's 9-7 record was the only other plus-.500 mark among Met starters.
