Daniel Vogelbach was a welcome mid-season addition

Daniel Vogelbach was a welcome mid-season addition

Photo by Todd Kirkland/ The lefty masher could’ve done more if not for a hamstring injury. Going into the season, there was a fear that the Mets had a designated hitter problem. This is borderline ironic, as the Mets had a bevy of players that didn’t have a natural position on the field, and would make fine designated hitters in theory. But after Robinson Cáno, J.D. Davis, and Dominic Smith all faltered at the position, the Mets had to go out and get a player, or players, to fill the position. Enter Daniel Vogelbach, the 29 year-old journeyman who had seen stints...

Mets Morning News for November 30, 2022

Darren Yamashita-USA TODAY Sports Your Wednesday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets The Mets are looking to pair one of Jacob deGrom, Justin Verlander, or Carlos Rodon with Max Scherzer at the top of their rotation. Meeting with Verlander and Rodon are considered contingency plans if deGrom leaves. On that note, the Mets are set to meet with Rodon some time this week. Meanwhile, the Rays have reportedly reached out to Jacob deGrom. While Daniel Vogelbach will most likely be on the team in 2023, it’s unlikely he would be the...
