Jeff McNeil had a breakout rookie campaign for the Mets

After injury woes throughout his minor league career stunted his development, McNeil is finally healthy and contributing in a big way at the major league level. Jeff McNeil was drafted by the Mets in the 12th round of the 2013 draft and was never atop anyone’s prospect list. He was projected by most to be a useful utility player at best and did play many positions during his minor league tenure. A contact-oriented hitter, McNeil hit for average at every level in the minor leagues and found himself in Double-A by 2015. But then a double sports hernia and a hip labrum tear caused him to...

Final Score: Mets 1, Marlins 0 — Smell ya later, 2018

Final Score: Mets 1, Marlins 0 — Smell ya later, 2018

Syndergaard, McNeil, and Frazier helped close out the year. The Mets closed out their 2018 season with a victory over the Miami Marlins, 1-0 at Citi Field. The story, as has been the case for most of the Mets’ season, was the starting pitching. Noah Syndergaard closed out his season with a complete game shutout, giving up just five hits and no walks over the course of the day, while striking out six. The Mets mustered little offense, but at least did so earlier than in last night’s 1-0 victory. In the fourth inning, Jeff McNeil singled to lead off the inning, and came around to score...
