MLB: Spring Training-New York Mets at Miami Marlins Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

The Mets announced their second round of roster cuts. There are now 34 players left in big league camp.

After his best outing of the spring, Matt Harvey is ready for the regular season.

Adrian Gonzalez hit his first homer of the spring, saying it was “Somewhat of a monkey off my bat”. Meanwhile, Dominic Smith’s strained quad continues to frustrate him.

With the start of the season approaching, the Mets have one last big roster question. Which players will round out the bullpen?

Neil Walker hoped a reunion with the Mets was possible. Ultimately, Walker signed with the Yankees.
