Travis Taijeron went 1-for-3 against the Cubs on Friday.
The 27-year-old is batting .366/.426/.634 in 41 at-bats this spring. Taijeron hit 25 home runs at Triple-A Las Vegas last season and is fighting to earn an Opening Day spot with the major league club. The New York Mets will likely send him back to Las Vegas to start the season but he could work his way up to the majors if he continues his hot play from this spring.
Travis Taijeron homered Thursday and is now batting .412 with seven RBI in eight spring games.
Taijeron hit 25 homers at Triple-A Las Vegas last season and has carried that power and production into the spring. He is unlikely to earn a spot on the 25-man roster, but if he keeps displaying that power, he could force his way into the equation as a right-handed bat off the bench.
