Meet the Mets
As of now the Mets are still planning to play Opening Day in front of fans, but the situation could change considering what is going on with other sports.
The team rewarded Pete Alonso for his outstanding rookie season with a record-breaking raise for 2020.
Michael Conforto’s oblique strain was diagnosed as mild but there is no timetable for his return just yet.
Even though the injury isn’t expected to be serious, the Mets are now facing a depth problem in their outfield.
One solution could be to move J.D. Davis over to right field if Conforto is not ready by Opening Day.
Eduardo Nunez has a shot at making the team now that he is finally healthy and contributing to the team this spring.
David Wright is settling into his new role with the front office and is happy with the flexibility it gives him to spend time with his family.
