Who will shine for the New York Mets this season? The Rising Apple team predicts how the major players will perform in the 2019 season.

Last year, the New York Mets set a new record for players used in a single season. This trend should continue. The Triple-A team is closer, the minimum disabled list stint is shorter, and bullpens matter more than ever before.

We don’t know for sure who will crack the Opening Day roster, but we do have a pretty good idea of who will contribute regularly at some point this season. While the abilities of some remain a bit of a mystery, we have seen a lot from these men who will make up the 2019 Mets to make some predictions.

One of the great things here at Rising Apple is the variety of opinions we can share. We don’t always agree. Some of us firmly believe Amed Rosario is a future star. Meanwhile, others think Andres Gimenez is the future at shortstop in Flushing.

As far as I know, none of us can guarantee who succeeds and who fails in 2019. To the best of our knowledge, however, we were able to put out some predictions for men who should impact the 2019 Mets in big ways both positively and negatively.

This exercise proved a couple of things. The most important is that fans are eager to see this baseball team take the field for the 2019 season. Even if all of these predictions blow up in our face, baseball is on its way.

Right or wrong, this is what some members of the Rising Apple staff see coming for Mets players in the next few months.
