Mets sign Adeiny Hechavarria to a minor league contract

Hechavarria provides some depth at the shortstop position. The Mets have signed Adeiny Hechavarria to a minor league contract with an invite to major league spring training. Given that the roster lacks a natural backup for Amed Rosario at the shortstop position, this is a depth signing that makes sense for the team and there is a chance he could make the big league roster. The only other player with significant experience at shortstop among players likely to make the 25-man roster is Jed Lowrie, but there is some doubt he can hack it at the position at this stage is in his career. The deal...

One Last Move: Adam Jones

Still unsigned, Jones could be the last piece of the puzzle for the Mets in 2019 Welcome to One Last Move, where our writers pitch a move to the Mets that would close out their off-season and make the team better in 2019. Although the Mets have greatly improved this offseason, no team is ever complete. In trading for Keon Broxton, the Mets added some depth to their outfield. However, even with the addition of Broxton, the Mets could still benefit from the addition of a more experienced outfielder. Therefore, the Mets should execute one last transaction by signing veteran free agent Adam...

Mets Morning News for February 15, 2019

Your Friday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets Jacob deGrom met with the media and discussed his desire to stay with the Mets long term. If the team does not lock him up, the reigning Cy Young winner will consider what is best for himself and perhaps cap his workload this season. He is using what little leverage he has to get an extension, but who really has the leverage in this situation (paywall alert)? Jacob deGrom seems content to let this play out in the public eye and that puts the team in an awkward situation. There is nothing left for the...

Would Jacob deGrom tarnish his good-guy image by boycotting the media?

LL’s Top 50 Mariners Prospects 2019: #5 - Justin Dunn

The Seattle Mariners added two top-100 prospects in the Canó-Díaz trade. One of them, RHP Justin Dunn, is fresh off a year flourishing for the Mets’ Double-A squad For better or worse, the 2018-19 Seattle Mariners’ offseason will go down as a seminal time in the franchise’s history. The season of change shipped several stalwarts to new homes, ranging from former Mariner draft picks to superstars acquired in past free agency periods or shrewd trades. That beloved group of players landed Seattle in the dreaded zone between the playoffs and a top-10 draft slot. Understandably, the...
