Meet the Mets

The Mets are reportedly showing interest in free agent starter Lucas Giolito.

With the new year right around the corner, where do the Mets stand as the calendar turns to 2024?

The Mets’ new pitching lab is showing promise according to one prospect but it is still too early to judge how effective it will be going forward.

As the starting rotation is currently constructed it is a bit thin, so prospect Mike Vasil could become an important piece to the 2024 team.

Around the National League East

Austin Riley had a monster year for the Braves in 2023.

The Marlins still have some holes to fill on their roster as the new season approaches.

Now that the Phillies re-signed Aaron Nola, extending Zack Wheeler has become their top priority.

Around Major League Baseball

Yoshinobu Yamamoto met with the press for the first time since signing his mega-deal with the Dodgers and he said they were always his preferred landing spot.

Former Yankee Isiah Kiner-Falefa reportedly signed a two-year deal with the Blue Jays worth $15 million.

The Twins signed reliever Josh Staumont to a one-year deal after he underwent surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome which cost him much of the 2023 season.

Wander Franco has been summoned by authorities in the Dominican Republic to answer a complaint of allegations that he had inappropriate relationships with minors.
