With camp underway for the New York Mets and Spring Training games right around the corner, there are some players worth monitoring during competition this spring. More specifically, the Mets have some intriguing non-roster invites in Port St. Lucie that could potentially head north with the ballclub at the end of March.
While for the most part, the Mets roster seems to be in pretty good shape, there are still arguably a few spots available on the big league roster that need solidifying prior to Opening Day.
Also, we can never forget that the Mets have always found a way to be snakebitten by injury which makes the depth moves made by the front office this offseason all the more important.
The New York Mets have a few intriguing non-roster invites that could potentially make the Opening Day roster with a strong spring.
A couple of positions of competition that the Mets brass will be looking at heavily during Spring Training is the bullpen with the loss of reliever Seth Lugo, and center field as the Mets failed to land either George Springer and Jackie Bradley Jr. this offseason. Both the bullpen and center field have a host of players that are vying for a spot on the Opening Day roster which will make the competition that much more exciting to watch.
In the spirit of competition, there are three players who were non-roster invitees that could have a good shot of filling one of those needs for the Mets should they produce in games this spring. Without further ado let’s review who those three non-roster invitees are that I believe could make the Mets Opening Day roster with an impressive showing in Spring Training.
