As the New York Mets head into the 2021 regular season there are several players whose seats are warm due to past performance and who could be finding their job in jeopardy if expectations are not met. The organization has done a great job as a whole in filling potential weaknesses this offseason on the Major League roster, but there are still areas that the front office could upgrade on later this season.

While I grade the Mets offseason as a whole as an A, there are still fans who are pessimistic about certain players who remain on the active roster, and I firmly believe those four players (in which I will name) are potentially on the hot seat.

However, it’s still important to remember we potentially have witnessed the greatest Mets offseason since 2006 with the number of quality acquisitions that were made this winter.

The Mets enter the 2021 campaign with four players who will be playing under a larger microscope than others on the roster.

When looking at the landscape of Major League Baseball, no club has currently come into Spring Training without questions on their active roster, and the Mets do have a few questions that need answering this spring when it comes to the following four players. Each of these players needs to have a great spring and get off to a hot start this season in order to cool their seats moving forward.

Let’s dive into looking at the first of four players who are on the hot seat for the Mets heading into 2021. These players’ performance will dictate where their future lies within the organization.
