Players like Peter Alonso, Chris Flexen, and Luis Guillorme all got a fair amount of playing time in big-league camp this spring, as well as others like Tomas Nido, Gavin Cecchini, Tyler Bashlor, and even a guy who made the Mets’ Opening Day roster, Jacob Rhame.

Other guys like David Thompson, P.J. Conlon, Marcos Molina, Drew Smith, Jamie Callahan, Corey Oswalt, and Gerson Bautista are sure to figure heavily into Double-A Binghamton and Triple-A Las Vegas’ seasons this year and next.

Ronny Mauricio ($2.1 million) and Adrian Hernandez ($1.5 million) headline a very strong 2017-18 international free agency class in which the Mets signed four of the top 50 prospects according to Baseball America.

Bautista, Rhame, Callahan and Smith were part of the trade returns the Mets got for dealing veteran at the deadline last season.
