Mets Season Preview
One of the faces of the franchise, Lindor will look to have another MVP-type season in 2023.
The 29-year-old has pitched pretty well in his time in the big leagues.
The Mets’ third-oldest starter at the age of 36, Carrasco will look to anchor the back end of the 2023 rotation.
The Mets need more from their DH spot this season.
[Insert churve pun here]
The righty has shown some pop with the bat in the minor leagues.
Coonrod had been feeling good and pitching well in spring training before suffering the injury.
Guillorme had a great year in 2022 and should be a key piece again this year.
After singing an extension this offseason, McNeil looks to pick up where he left off in 2022.
Ridings was hurt and barely pitched last year, but he fared very well in 2021.
Hernandez came to the Mets alongside Jeff Brigham in a trade with the Marlins.
Raley is an MLB journeyman with impressive stuff, but his actions impact far beyond the mound.
Montes de Oca will start the year on the injured list.
There’s not much doubt about the former. The latter will be the big test for the Mets’ top prospect.
Signed last year with most of his Tommy John rehab ahead of him, Curtiss is now positioned to help the Mets.
The slugging first baseman is always good for a lot of dingers.
Despite not having a clear rotation spot, Peterson will likely be called upon for plenty of starts.
Butto has improved since his disastrous MLB debut last season, but there’s too much competition for too few spots to make him a serious candidate for the roster.
The Mets are hoping the Japanese ace can successfully make the jump to the major leagues.
The young infielder holds potential, but can he overcome his significant limitations at the plate?
Brigham is another dude with a sweepy slider that the Mets added this past offseason.
Tommy Hunter has achieved fan-favorite status over the last two years, and looks to keep the good vibes going into 2023.
There are a lot of traits to like here.
With no clear number one catcher Nido will likely see significant playing time.
We have seen flashes of what Megill can do and he is a key part of the Mets’ rotation depth, but he’s yet to show he can sustain a higher-octane arsenal and stay healthy.
Despite injury risk, Marte remains a key part of the Mets lineup.
Once his knee heals, Mendick is a huge upgrade over internal backup infielders currently in the org.
The mustachioed righty is out of options and performed well in a small sample in the majors last season, which perhaps gives him a leg up over some other bullpen candidates.
Francisco Álvarez is on the way, but Narváez could be a big help as the prospect continues to develop.
Mad Max was great for much of last season, but an oblique injury and two bad starts at the end stick out in his first go-around with the Mets.
