  • Mets' Jeff McNeil: Penciled in as starter

    General manager Brodie Van Wagenen said McNeil is "penciled in" as the Mets' starting second baseman in 2019, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    McNeil settled in as the Mets' starter at second base following the trade of Asdrubal Cabrera in July and slashed .329/.381/.471 with three homers and seven stolen bases across 63 games over the remainder of the season. The 26-year-old flashed impressive contact skills, striking out just 9.7 percent of the time in 2018.

  • Mets' Tim Tebow: Expected to open season at Triple-A

    Tebow (hand) will likely begin the 2019 season at Triple-A, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

    Tebow spent the entire 2018 season with Double-A Binghamton, hitting .273/.336/.399 with six homers across 84 games for the Rumble Ponies before a broken hand prematurely ended his season in July. The 31-year-old is fully healed from the injury, according to general manager Brodie Van Wagenen. The GM didn't rule out the possibility of the 31-year-old cracking the Opening Day roster, though that seems unlikely.

  • Mets' Travis d'Arnaud: On track for Opening Day

    General manager Brodie Van Wagenen said d'Arnaud (elbow) is on track to be fully healthy for Opening Day, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    D'Arnaud underwent Tommy John surgery in April of 2018. While he's expected to be ready for the start of the 2019 campaign, it's unclear if he will be competing for a starting role with the Mets, as New York could choose to non-tender the backstop this winter given his injury history and underwhelming numbers since breaking into the majors in 2013 (.245/.306/.406 with 47 homers across parts of six seasons).

  • Mets' Wilmer Flores: Fully healthy

    General manager Brodie Van Wagenen said Flores (knee) is fully healthy, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    Flores was shut down in mid-September with early onset arthritis in his knees, but he's apparently back to full health heading into winter. At this point, it's unclear if the Mets will tender the utility man a contract after he hit .267/.319/.417 with 11 homers in 126 games in 2018.

  • Mets' Peter Alonso: Will receive invite to big-league camp

    Alonso will be invited to spring training and is expected to have the opportunity to compete for the starting job at first base, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Alonso has yet to make his major-league debut despite putting together a .260/.355/.585 slash line with 21 home runs and 67 RBI across 67 games at Triple-A Las Vegas in 2018. He's expected to see a lot of at-bats during spring training and could ultimately earn a starting role if he's able to impress.

  • Mets' P.J. Conlon: Removed from 40-man roster

    Conlon was outrighted to Triple-A Syracuse on Friday.

    Conlon spent the majority of the 2018 season at the Triple-A level, appearing in 23 games and posting a 6.55 ERA with 82 punchouts over 114 frames, although those numbers were compiled for the Mets' prior affiliate in Las Vegas. He'll be cast off the 40-man roster heading into the offseason but will get a chance to earn his spot back next spring.

  • Mets' Yoenis Cespedes: Undergoes second heel surgery

    Cespedes underwent a second surgery to remove the calcifications in his left heel Friday.

    Cespedes is expected to resume baseball activities around late February/early March, though the Mets aren't anticipating him to return until the second half of the 2019 season, per Mike Puma of the New York Post. The main reason his return to the field is projected for a few months after he's initially slated to start activities is due to the fact that he won't be able to advance to a running program until late March. The outfielder is hopeful that he'll be able to return before the All-Star break. Cespedes previously underwent a similar procedure on his right heel in early August.

  • Mets' Franklyn Kilome: Undergoes Tommy John surgery

    Kilome underwent Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

    This is a tough break for Kilome and the Mets, as the 23-year-old -- who was acquired from the Phillies back in July in exchange for Asdrubal Cabrera -- will now be sidelined until the 2020 season. The big right-hander spent all of the 2018 campaign at Double-A, posting a combined 4.18 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 125:61 K:BB across 26 starts (140 innings) between Reading and Binghampton.

  • Mets' Yoenis Cespedes: Heel surgery delayed

    Cespedes' second heel surgery has been delayed, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    Cespedes was originally scheduled to go under the knife Tuesday, but the surgery was delayed due to a scheduling conflict. The veteran outfielder is still scheduled to undergo the procedure before the end of the month, keeping him on track to begin baseball activities around the end of February or beginning of March. Cespedes isn't expected to be able to run at that point, however, so he likely won't be ready for the start of spring training. Look for his status to be updated as he progresses in his post-surgery rehab program.
