Meet the Mets
According to Ken Rosenthal, the Mets may look to improve their bullpen this offseason by entering the Josh Hader sweepstakes.
Just as he has been for most of the past five years, Jacob deGrom is projected to be the Mets’ best player in 2020.
Around the National League East
The only Wilmer in major league history to never play for the Mets, Wilmer Difo, avoided arbitration with the Washington Nationals.
As the arbitration deadline comes and goes tonight, the Phillies’ Cesar Hernandez and Maikel Franco could be two of the names that find themselves needing new teams.
Around Major League Baseball
Being a month into the period of free agency, it’s safe to say that we, as baseball fans, have learned a few things.
The aforementioned arbitration deadline is at 8:00 tonight and depending on what happens, the free agency pool could say hello to a few dozen new swimmers.
Up in Boston, Red Sox fans were given a late bit of news to be thankful for as Dr. James Andrews gave staff ace Chris Sale the green light to begin throwing.
The Rangers’ next priority this offseason has to be their hole at third base, and apparently they’ve been eyeing Miguel Andujar to fill that need.
Just because he’s 46-years-old and retired doesn’t mean Ichiro can’t still rack up three hits and throw a 16-strikeout shutout, even if it was an exhibition game against a group of Japanese teachers.
The rumor in the bay area is that the Athletics are Treinen to trade reliever Blake Treinen.
This Date in Mets History
The Mets celebrated the third of the month a day early on this date in 1968, 1991, and 1998 by signing third basemen Wayne Garret, Bobby Bonilla, and Robin Ventura.
