Age: 24 Bats/Throws: Right/Right There’s speculation that Cory Mazzoni could make the big league team out of spring training because the Mets have failed to add much depth in the bullpen to this point.

2014 Mets Top Prospects: No. 24 Juan Centeno, C

24. Juan Centeno Height: 5’10” Weight: 170 lbs. Age: 24 Bats/Throws: Left/Right Juan Centeno is the best defensive catcher the Mets have in the organization so it looks as if his future role will be to backup Travis d’Arnaud. He’s more valuable than he seems because catchers generally start less games than any position on […]

Can Ike Davis Win The First Base Job For The Mets in 2014?

So it seems the Mets are prepared to go into spring training and have Ike Davis and Lucas Duda duking it out to see who the Mets’ first baseman is in 2014. They’re both lefties, so there is no platoon scenario here. At the end of spring, one of those two men will be standing […]

25. Wilfredo Tovar Height: 5’6” Weight: 160 lbs. Age: 22 Bats/Throws: Right/Right Mets fans got a small taste of Wilfredo Tovar last season when he came up for 7 games, going 3-for-15 with 2 RBI’s, 1 SB, 1 BB, and 3 K’s. He is not a toolsy shortstop in any light. With virtually non-existent power […]

Three Potential Breakout Pitchers for Mets in 2014

Zack Wheeler Wheeler is going to be counted on heavily next season to help pick up the slack in the absence of Matt Harvey. Something in me wonders if he’ll be able to handle that kind of pressure.  Wheeler’s laid back personality is on the complete opposite spectrum of Harvey’s bulldog mentality and I’m interested […]
