3) Tylor Megill
Eventually, Tylor Megill just is what he is. There's no doubt that he has some potential. He's shown some great things in his three seasons with the Mets. The fact of the matter with this right-hander is he's struggled to stay healthy and has been wildly inconsistent. He looked mostly awful this past season, despite being the Mets' Opening Day starter.
Megill was thrust into action when Justin Verlander landed on the IL and after a decent April, really struggled for much of the season. He did find a way to stay healthy this past season and made 25 starts for the Mets, but he made ten of those starts in the second half after a six-start stint in the minor leagues. Megill was sent down in late June after posting a 5.17 ERA in 15 starts.
He finished his season on the right foot, posting a 3.00 ERA in his final eight starts, but Megill really only had a couple of starts all season long where it looked like he was in control. His command took a major step back in 2023, and his strikeouts took a big dip as well. He might've posted a 4.70 ERA but his xERA was over a full run higher at 5.89 thanks in large part to elevated hit and walk rates.
Megill has shown flashes of being a solid starting pitcher in this league, but he's also failed to string together any sort of consistency throughout his three MLB seasons. He'll get a chance to contribute at some point, but Megill could be running out of chances to prove himself.
