The Las Vegas club has been the Mets affiliate since 2012.
"We have had a great partnership with the Las Vegas 51s and the city of Las Vegas, one which continues to provide player development, winning and community involvement," said Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson. "Maintaining continuity in Vegas is something we know will benefit our players, the city, fans and entire community."
