Meet the Mets

The Mets bolstered their infield depth on Tuesday morning, signing Jonathan Villar.

Ken Davidoff spoke with Davey Johnson about a famous Mets moment from years ago and how it relates to his scary battle with COVID-19.

Ken Rosenthal tweeted the Mets are potentially interested in bringing Justin Turner home, though it remains likely he returns to the Dodgers.

For the first time in two decades, David Wright is no longer a member of the Mets organization. However, he could return to the team in a part-time role.

Around the National League East

The Braves signed Nate Jones to a minor league deal with an invite to spring training.

The Marlins bolstered their outfield, signing Adam Duvall to a one-year deal.

Around Major League Baseball

The 2021 MLB COVID protocols have been put in place, and for the most part, they’re similar to what we saw in 2020, sans a universal DH.

After the Jared Porter and Mickey Callaway allegations, MLB has updated its harassment policy.

Joel Sherman writes that implementing the universal DH is for the good of the game, especially amidst the pandemic.

Jake McGee is heading to San Francisco on a two-year deal.

Currently a free agent, Ryan Braun says he is not interested in playing.

MLB teams have until Friday to submit their list of the up to 75 players they will have in spring training.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue
