Cory Mazzoni is yet another prospect who is still used primarily as a starting pitcher, but he could find his way into the Mets’ bullpen on Opening Day. Walters pitched to a 2.03 ERA and broke the Binghamton Mets saves record with 38. While saves are a mediocre tool for evaluating relief pitchers, he has proven he can effectively pitch at the end of games. With the Mets still needing a number of bullpen questions answered, deGrom could be an answer.

According to the Baseball-Reference page, he was 48. Some, however, believe he was in his mid-300s.
Five players from last year’s roster return to Hyannis this summer and look to take the team to its first playoff experience since 2004. The former eighth-round pick out of Fresno State has had an up and down career since entering the minor leagues. Muno started off sizzling, hitting .355 with a .980 OPS for the Brooklyn Cyclones, but in 2012 he was suspendedfor violating Major League Baseball’s drug policy. Danny Muno, the only position player on this list, could potentially make the Mets out of spring training because of his solid 2013 campaign and his ability to play either middle infield position. While deGrom and Walters are relatively safe bets to become solid major leaguers at some point in their careers, Leathersich is less of a sure thing. This is the 2007 Mets roster, and I’m not talking about the actual players on the team.
The Mets have announced their roster for the best-of-three Wild Card Series vs the Padres that begins on Friday night at Citi Field. Mets top prospect Francisco Álvarez becomes the youngest player at 20 years old in team history to make a playoff roster. The other big news is Mets outfielder wiffle strike zone Starling Marte being on the roster after missing time recently with a fractured finger. It continued during the game, when Park, perhaps acting out of desperation, struck out five batters in three hitless innings, and Burgos followed by allowing a first-pitch homer to Dan Uggla.

The Mets entered the All-Star break with 48 wins and 39 losses, with a slim lead over the second-place Atlanta Braves. The Mets acquired Luis Castillo and Jeff Conine before the playoff roster deadline of September 1 to fill holes that were created due to injuries. On July 12, 2007, Julio Franco was released by the Mets. This is because the top defensive player ratings are based on league average. However, the New York Yankees and the Chicago Cubs, two other teams with high defensive player ratings, have high defensive player ratings that are based on player ratings.
Padres Game 1 starter Yu Darvish has a great career but has struggled in the postseason. The Mets should feel good about their chances against him. In Game 2, it will be Blake Snell, who had a great performance that ended too early in the 2020 World Series. DeGrom should pitch against him unless they go with Chris Bassitt.
