Allan Dykstra, playing winter ball in Venezuela with the Magallanes Navigators and is tearing up the league batting .412/.512/.559 in just 12 games. He is currently on a 7-game hitting streak and has hit safely in 11 of the 12 games with two doubles and a home run.
Fresh off winning the 2013 Sterling Player of the Year award, when he hit .274/.436/.503 with 21 HR’s and 82 RBI’s in 372 at bats, he is now preparing himself for a solid season and a possible major league debut in 2014.
With first base a huge issue on the major league roster, Dykstra is showing the Mets fans that he may be the answer for 2014 and beyond. I am sure that is something we all can’t wait to see.
