The Mets are coming into Spring Training in 2017 with pretty much the same team we saw last season, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a lot of questions surrounding the club as our attention shifts to Florida.

The Mets didn’t make as many moves as many of us would have hoped, but by bringing the band back together from last season, they’ve at least put themselves in a position to stay competitive.

To recap the Mets’ biggest offseason moves so far:

Picked up Jay Bruce‘s $13 million option.

Re-signed Yoenis Cespedes long-term.

Re-signed Jerry Blevins for one year with an option for next season.

Extended a qualifying offer to Neil Walker, who accepted it.

Re-signed Rene Rivera as a backup catcher.

While these moves maintained the status quo and didn’t really improve the team for most Mets fans, we have to remember last year’s squad was decimated by injuries — something the organization hopes doesn’t happen as badly again this year. This is our first — and arguably the biggest — question of Spring Training.
