2) Mets star players are having a good performance
It's not just the Mets' top prospects who are doing well in spring training. Francisco Lindor, Pete Alonso, and the top three of the starting rotation are making good performances in spring training.
In Alonso's case, who will be a free agent after this season, he is the second with the most at-bats on the team and leads with Ronny Mauricio in home runs. He owns an SLG and OPS well above the league average, proving his bat is ready for the World Baseball Classic and the 2023 season.
Lindor is making some quality contact this preseason. Francisco comes from his best season with the organization in 2022 and is a candidate to exploit all his talent and compete for the MVP this 2023. Lindor has hit in almost 50% of his at-bats, using the entire field, with power and run production. He is currently one of the leaders in more connected balls over 100 mph.
Max Scherzer, Justin Verlander, and Kodai Senga have launched at least one start each in spring training, demonstrating the good stuff that each one has. Despite adjusting to the new pitching clock rule, they have accumulated more than ten strikeouts in just over nine innings pitched, limiting runs allowed and showing great speed on their fastball. Among them, Senga first showed his "Ghost" forkball on North American soil by striking out super prospect Jordan Walker and escaping the first inning unharmed.
