Mets Right Field Depth Chart: Brandon Nimmo, Jeff McNeil, Mark Canha, Nick Plummer

A bit of a repeat of the other outfield positions, the only difference we have is the addition of Jeff McNeil. Brandon Nimmo is the projected starter with McNeil, Mark Canha, and Nick Plummer slotted in the rear.

If McNeil really does end up starting at second base for the team, I wouldn’t expect him to play much right field for them. More realistically, I would expect Canha to slide across the outfield and see some action whenever needed. Even someone like J.D. Davis could make some sense at the position.

Needless to say, a lot of this and the rest of the roster depth charts depends on who and what the Mets trade away or add to the roster. A single major free agent signing can change everything.

Right field depth is a little more valuable than left field. You need a guy with an arm and a bit more range to prevent a couple of extra doubles from turning into triples—or worse.

The Mets are set pretty well at this position for the coming season. Nimmo’s health is always a question. However, with at least Canha remaining with the club, they have some pretty solid solutions if—more likely when—they lose Nimmo for any time to an injury.
