Cinco de Mayo marks a little over a month of MLB action. We’ve had visits of several former New York Mets to Citi Field already. We’ve also embarked on a journey to see what they were up to in their new cities.

These five Mets who suited up for the 2023 Mets at some point have had varying results to start the 2024 campaign. Let’s check in on who is experiencing happiness and who is playing their way off the roster.

1) Daniel Vogelbach is the same player with the Blue Jays

A uniform change didn’t have Daniel Vogelbach morphing into anyone else. A low average hitter who can draw walks well, this limited left-handed slugger has somehow managed to stay on the Toronto Blue Jays roster. He defied the odds by making the team out of camp thanks to a couple of home runs including one that got under the skin of reigning AL Cy Young winner Gerrit Cole.

Vogelbach’s playing time with the Blue Jays has been limited. The presence of Justin Turner to eat up a majority of their DH at-bats has kept him on the sidelines much more than his tenure with the Mets.

Vogelbach started on May Fourth and picked up an RBI despite going hitless in 5 at-bats. Unfortunately for him, he’s now slashing .107/.242/.179 in his first 33 trips to the plate. Two of his three hits on the year have been doubles but it should do little to help keep him around much longer. His 9 strikeouts gives him a percentage higher than anything he had in his tenure with the Mets.

Soon enough, the Blue Jays will wise up and see there are much better role-players to have around.
