While on paper, the New York Mets seem like a well-rounded team, they do still have a few concerns heading into the 2020 season.
Five years removed from playing in the World Series, the New York Mets have had a tumultuous few seasons. Since that run in 2015, when fans thought this was the start of something big, they earned a Wild Card berth the following year before finishing with a record under .500 in the 2017 and 2018 seasons.
The Mets 2019 season, however, felt like a turning point. It started off rocky, with Yoenis Cespedes being ruled out for the year, and the newly acquired Robinson Cano and Edwin Diaz struggling throughout the year, but the team battled through it, with young players like Pete Alonso, Jeff McNeil and Amed Rosario leading the charge, leading the team to an 86 win season.
Under the leadership of first-year manager Luis Rojas, the team looks to continue to develop their young players and build on their 2019 success and hopefully, make a playoff run at the conclusion of their 2020 campaign.
However, Mets fans are well aware to enter each season cautiously, as in baseball, anything can happen and while New York has a well-rounded team on paper, there are still a few uncertainties with it.
Here are the three biggest concerns for the Mets going into the 2020 season.
