To start the season, the 30-year-old looks more like the player that hit .319/.383/.501 from 2018 to 2020 than the guy that hit .251/.319/.360 in 2021.... See More ... See Less

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Two hits in Thursday's win
McNeil went 2-for-4 with an RBI in Thursday's win over the Nationals.
Getting the start in left field and batting eighth Opening Day, McNeil flashed his contact skills that seemed to desert him in 2021. The outfield start came with Brandon Nimmo (neck) sidelined and Dominic Smith sitting against southpaw Patrick Corbin, but most of McNeil's playing time this season is likely to come at second base....

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Will earn $3 million in 2022
McNeil and the Mets agreed Tuesday on a one-year, $3 million contract to avoid arbitration, Kiley McDaniel of ESPN.com reports.
McNeil's 23-homer outburst in 2019 continues to look like an aberration amid a minor- and major-league career with otherwise middling power production, but his high-contact approach and disciplined eye at the plate are enough to make him useful everyday player. He's expected to serve as the Mets' primary second baseman in 2022, with Robinson Cano -- who is back from a one-year suspension -- likely to handle designated-hitter duties in most games....

Mets' Jeff McNeil: Will be primary second baseman
McNeil will be the Mets' primary second baseman this season, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Robinson Cano will be returning from a PED suspension and will factor into the picture as well, but he'll also feature at designated hitter and potentially at first base. McNeil can play the outfield corners when Cano handles the keystone, but it sounds as if manager Buck Showalter experts to write McNeil in as his second baseman most nights. Performance will of course be a factor in how frequently McNeil plays this season, as he struggled to a .251/.319/.360 line last year after posting a .319/.383/.501 line in his first three years in the league, but fantasy managers can at least draft him as if he doesn't have major playing-time concerns to start the year....
