    I expect more guys to be put on this team. Nice bunch. Guillorme I think has a future as a back up INF. Thompson could be like a Ty Wigginton defacto 3rd Baseman until Vientos gets call. Nido’s bat has regressed a bit, it’s good he still doesn’t strike out a lot and has pop, however I think he needs to sort out his swing. Kaczmarski would be great if he played CF regularly but he lacks power for corners. Don’t know if he’s a 4th OF or AAAA player.

    Mets are sending 8 players to AFL, 4 everyday players and 4 pitchers.

    Source?? And if you have one, then who are the other players?
    4 and 4 was the breakdown last year. But that doesn’t mean it will be each and every year. I believe most teams normally send 7 and can request a special exemption for an extra player. The Mets also typically don’t make the final decisions on all the spots all at once.

  • Rocky Thompson

    The other player have not been announce, but I read the Mets were committed to sending 4 everyday players and 4 pitchers. I cannot find the article that mentioned this.
