  • Mets' Kevin Plawecki: Appears expendable

    Plawecki may not begin the upcoming season with the Mets following the Wilson Ramos signing, Andy Martino of reports.

    Plawecki shared the catching duties with Travis d'Arnaud for most of the 2018 campaign, but he may be on the outside looking in after New York added a solid backstop via free agency in Ramos. The Mets could include Plawecki in a trade to acquire much-needed depth in the bullpen, per Martino, or Plawecki may simply end up at Triple-A Syracuse to begin the 2019 season.

  • Mets' Wilson Ramos: Lands two-year pact with Mets

    Ramos agreed to a two-year, $19 million contract with the Mets on Sunday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    As one of the more offensive-minded catchers in the league, Ramos was sought after by many teams in free agency. The Mets wound up winning the battle to get him, providing the team with a clear upgrade from Kevin Plawecki and Travis d'Arnaud behind the dish. Playing half his games at pitcher-friendly Citi Field certainly doesn't give Ramos a huge boost in value, but hitting .300 two of the past three seasons and at least 15 home runs in three of the past four years keeps him among the better fantasy catching options.

  • Mets' Kyle Dowdy: Switches organizations

    Dowdy was selected by the Mets with the 10th pick of the Rule 5 draft.

    He heads to his third organization, as he was shipped from Detroit to Cleveland in the Leonys Martin trade this past July. Dowdy, a 25-year-old righty, logged a 4.47 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 44 strikeouts in 54.1 innings at Triple-A with the Tigers, but was sent down to Double-A after the Indians acquired him. He is a low-upside arm who will likely work in low-leverage relief settings for the Mets.

  • Mets' Jeurys Familia: Returns to Queens

    Familia agreed to a three-year, $30 million contract with the Mets late Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    Familia will return to the organization he spent more than a decade with before a July trade to Oakland last season. He was closing for the Mets before that trade, but that's pretty much off the table this time around with one of the best relief pitchers in the world in Edwin Diaz now locked into the ninth for New York.

  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: May serve in utility role

    McNeil is likely to be featured as a utility player for the Mets in 2019, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    McNeil was previously penciled in as the Mets' starter at second base, but the acquisition of Robinson Cano from the Mariners in early December alters that significantly. According to DiComo, the team has discussed the 26-year-old as an option at all four infield positions in addition to left field. McNeil may not start the season as an everyday starter, but with Dominic Smith, Todd Frazier, Amed Rosario and Cano currently rounding out the Mets' infield, there should still be ample opportunities to accrue at-bats.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Set to lead off next season

    Manager Mickey Callaway said Tuesday that Nimmo "needs to be leading off" in 2019, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    It's an unsurprising declaration to hear from the Mets' manager, as Nimmo started 65 games as the leadoff hitter and had a .404 OBP and 15.0 percent walk rate in 2018. The 25-year-old's plate discipline doesn't appear to be an aberration either, as he posted a similar walk rate in 69 games with the Mets the previous season. The acquisition of veteran second baseman Robinson Cano (knee) should also help the young outfielder in his run-scoring efforts.

  • Mets' Seth Lugo: Set to remain in bullpen

    Manager Mickey Callaway said he prefers to keep Lugo in the bullpen heading into the 2019 season, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.

    This shouldn't come as much of a surprise considering Lugo served exclusively as a reliever during the second half of this past season. He only would up starting five games in 54 appearances while logging a 2.10 ERA and 0.82 WHIP during the final two months. The 29-year-old figures to serve in a high-leverage, multi-inning setup role alongside Robert Gsellman with the recently-acquired Edwin Diaz set to close.

  • Mets' Juan Lagares: Playing in winter league

    Lagares (toe) is included on the Aguilas Cibaeanas roster for the Dominican Winter League.

    Lagares started in center field for the club Tuesday and went 1-for-2 with a double in what amounted to his first competitive action since May. After a lengthy recovery from surgery to address the left toe injury, Lagares will look to get back into a rhythm in winter ball before likely preparing for a reserve outfield role with the Mets this spring.

  • Mets' Robinson Cano: On track for spring training

    Cano underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee following the 2018 season, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    The surgery, which was performed by the Mets' medical director, Dr. David Altchek, while Cano was still a member of the Mariners, was considered minor. The veteran second baseman is expected to be fully healthy by the time spring training rolls around. Cano was traded to the Mets earlier in the week and will immediately slot in as the team's everyday second baseman, hitting in the heart of the order.
