When Perry pitched, the place seemed as big as a national park. While there is almost no chance the Mets would make Muno their starting shortstop on Opening Day, he is definitely an option to keep an eye on as the team heads into spring training. With much of the Mets’ bullpen situation in flux heading into the season, Walters is another dark-horse prospect who could easily sneak onto the roster and make an impact for the Mets in 2014. Here are five dark-horse prospects who could make the Mets’ roster out of spring training. The risk of releasing Canó is that he could hook on elsewhere — with the Yankees, perhaps, or with a National League East rival — and return to form on someone else’s watch.
Josh Hader has started to pitch better after a brutal stretch. The biggest factor in the lineup remains Manny Machado. Machado is right at the top of the NL with Paul Goldschmidt for MVP considerations. Flaherty and Macias, teammates at No. 1 Vanderbilt, will help the Mets by continuing their success at the plate, as they have batting averages of .365 and .298 respectively for the Commodores. Flaherty, a sweet-swinging southpaw batter, was named one of the Top 30 Prospects in the Cape League last summer by Baseball America.
Sometimes, it’s a reliever with an ERA below 3.00 that I either completely forgot about or was too busy with other things to even notice he played for the New York Mets.

Coverage includes the NBA, NFL, MLB and NHL, as well as vintage media from defunct teams and leagues.

John Maine and Oliver Perez topped the team with 15 wins each, and Oliver Perez recorded a 3.56 ERA, tops among regularly-used pitchers.

It is a comprehensive team roster and player names are sorted by the fielding position where the most number of games were played during the regular season.
So, it is possible to have a high defensive player rating and a very high defensive player rating. While many fans want to see star prospects, such as Noah Syndergaard and Rafael Montero, make the Opening Day roster, they are less likely candidates and will probably begin the season in Double-A. This list lacks potentially elite prospectssuch as Syndergaard, but fans should care about these players, as they will be making an impact on the major league roster sooner rather than later. The Mets scored 804 runs and allowed 750 runs. Carlos Beltran walloped 33 home runs for New York, while Carlos Delgado and David Wright swatted 20 or more, too. David Wright led batters with significant playing time with a .325 average.
If any of you are fans of the Mets, and have been for the last decade, then this is a pretty interesting year. Jon Adkins, who had a 10.38 earned run average in 10 appearances, was sent to Class AAA New Orleans. Paul Lo Duca batted second and David Wright hit fifth Friday, although Willie Randolph said he was not ready to announce his opening-day lineup.
They’re going to use their powers to improve their clubhouse in the coming years. On Sunday, Smith proved rather emphatically that the Mets’ best roster almost certainly includes him. The current regime has spoken openly about its desire to build the best roster possible, four-seam fastball grip which theoretically means regardless of sunk costs. As soon as he realized this, Milledge, who turns 22 on Thursday, concentrated on returning from the hand injury sooner. He returned Thursday to play against the Dodgers, a day before he originally anticipated.
