Mark Vientos is closer to the show than you think

Mark Vientos | Steve Sypa The slugging third baseman could conceivably be ready for a MLB cup of coffee at the end of the season. When the Mets drafted Mark Vientos in the second round of the 2017 MLB Draft, the case could be made that they were getting a steal. With prospect fatigue setting in after years of being scouted on the showcase circuit, a quad injury that limited his playing time during his senior year at American Heritage High School, and a commitment to the University of Miami that was considered fairly strong, teams passed over the borderline first-round...

The lefty starter pitched well for the club in 2020, turning in the second-most consistent campaign behind only Jacob deGrom. It won’t be a breeze for him to make the 2021 […] Mets Roster Battle: David Peterson versus Joey Lucchesi for the fifth starter spot - Rising Apple - Rising Apple - New York Mets News & Fan Community
