3) Ronny Mauricio returns and he's spectacular
Ronny Mauricio has been written off this season, but a return isn't impossible. What if he does his best surprise entrance late in the year and joins the Royal Rumble for the team's final push?
Mauricio returning this year and having any sort of positive impact is pretty useless if the Mets aren't very good anyway. To keep it in the scope of a Royal Rumble return, it’s an unexpected up-and-coming wrestler showing up and getting eliminated quickly.
Due to his injury, there’s a chance we put Mauricio in the back of our minds for a couple of months. It’ll be Luisangel Acuna highlighting the infield options for the Mets down the stretch.
For some added drama, this plot twist has Mauricio doing his best impression of Kyle Schwarber from 2016. An outfielder at the time for the Chicago Cubs, he was injured in his second game of the season in April. He didn’t return until the World Series where he’d slash .412/.500/.471.
Give us this from Mauricio and he’ll become a Mets legend.
