Technically open spots: three rotation spots, two bullpen spots, two bench spots.

I will try to update this list (and prune it, hopefully) a couple of times a week as more games are played and these guys start emerging as studs or duds.

Player, Position Comment
Jon Adkins, RHP
Didn't do anything to distinguish himself in Wednesday's spring opener.
Adam Bostick, LHP
Came to Mets from Marlins in Lindstrom/Owens trade. Has never pitched in the bigs, look for him to continue that trend in 2007.
Ambiorix Burgos, RHP
Plenty of arm, but does he know where it's going?
Marcos Carvajal, RHP
Snagged off waivers from TB, probably won't be Queens bound in April.
Philip Humber, RHP
Probably lower on the depth chart than Mike Pelfrey.
Chan Ho Park, RHP
Hasn't pitched yet, but also hasn't given up four runs in two innings.
John Maine, RHP
The only way he doesn't make this club is if he breaks his arm.
Mike Pelfrey, RHP
Needs Park to really stink up the joint this spring.
Oliver Perez, LHP
As for his spring debut, Willie was not impressed.
Alay Soler RHP
Wasn't terrible on Wednesday, but needs some help to make the team.
Jorge Sosa, RHP
He pitches like Sammy Sosa tells the truth to Congress.
Jason Vargas, LHP
Hasn't done anything yet.
Damion Easley, IF
1-for-2 with a single in the spring opener.
Anderson Hernandez, IF
Two at-bats, two IPORs. AHern is picking up right where he left off.
Ben Johnson, OF
Lost a ball in the sun the other day, but went 2-for-3 with a double and two runs on Wednesday.
Lastings Milledge, OF
Impressing so far with his arm and his attitude.
David Newhan, OF
Plays a bunch of positions, knocked in a couple of runs, knows his role.
Eddie Camacho, LHP
Pitched yesterday. Needs a lot of injuries to occur.
Willie Collazo, LHP
SEE: Eddie Camacho
Derek Lee, LHP
Not sure if he's even in camp.
Kevin Mulvey, RHP
The pitching depth chart isn't nearly deep enough to include him just yet.
Clint Nageotte, RHP
SEE: Waste of space.
Aaron Sele, RHP
Could be useful as a LAIM.
Joe Smith, RHP
Didn't get a chance to pitch yesterday, but made Milo look silly the other day.
Lino Urdaneta, RHP
Solid candidate to be removed from this list altogether.
Jorge Vasquez, RHP
SEE: ^^^ that guy ^^^
Sandy Alomar, Jr., C
Insurance policy.
Drew Butera, C
Needs a rash of injuries to the catching corps.
Mike DiFelice, C
Threw out a runner and struck out in his only at-bat. Yup, that's our Mike DiFelice.
Joe Hietpas, C
Still behind DiFelice on the depth chart. Enough said.
Mike Nickeas, C
Somebody tell me if he's even at PSL.
Francisco Pena, C
SEE: spring training 2009.
Jose A. Reyes, C
Only room for one Jose Reyes on this club.
Michel Abreu, 1B
Made an appearance yesterday but no plate appearances.
Mike Carp, 1B
0-for-1 on Wednesday.
Ruben Gotay, IF
His days are numbered.
Chip Ambres, OF
Solid bat, but probably won't get more than a cursory look in camp.
Fernando Martinez, OF
Big "wow" factor with this one. The next big thing?
Victor Mendez, OF
Ruben Sierra, OF
Drew a nice walk yesterday.
