Meet the Mets

If and when the lockout ends, the Mets might still sign Michael Conforto or Kris Bryant, according to a report by Pat Ragazzo.

Mets pitcher Max Scherzer is one of the players who has made his way to Florida to prepare for the 2022 season on independent terms while players remain locked out.

Eric Chavez, the Mets’ new hitting coach, said of the Mets’ hitters: “We want them going up to the plate with as little information as possible. We want their athletic ability to take over.” And he thinks the DH would benefit the team.

Mets pitching prospect Matt Allan spoke to the press about his recovery from Tommy John surgery.

Around Major League Baseball
