Meet the Mets
The Mets have decisions to make regarding Devin Mesoraco, Luis Avilan, Adeiny Hechavarria, and Rajai Davis. With the upward mobility clauses in their contracts, they can go to another team that is interested and can give them a major league spot.
Zack Wheeler had a strong showing in a minor league game as he looks forward to being on the major league roster this season.

Alonso and Andres Gimenez and clearly the Mets’ top prospects, but they do have some intriguing players at the lower levels in their system.
Prospect Anthony Kay hopes to follow in Steven Matz’s footsteps as he tries to make his way to the majors.
Even though he has a different role in the organization, David Wright still wants to help the team succeed.
