2020 Vision

Today came word that the Mets inked veteran sluggo Matt Adams to a minor league deal and invited him to spring training. Whether he winds up a 40-homer hitter in Syracuse or Pete Alonso’s caddy will depend I suspect on whatever Chief Brody has up his sleeve still. I wanna think they have some plans to move things around still (Dom Smith and Cesedes for Arenado?) Who knows.

But with the understanding things are still very fluid, let’s take the first crack at a 2020 numerical roster. Note we’re still awaiting assignments for several coaches (Jeremy Hefner, Tony DeFrancesco); unassigned 40-men players (Ali Sanchez); and non-roster invitees (Adams, Matt Blackham, Ryley Gilliam, Pedro Payano, Francisco Rios, Chasen Shreve, Kevin Smith and Adonis Uceta — and probably several more)… also note there are currently two guys assigned No. 60.

    36 to be retired: Koosman

  2. Gene F. says:

    DeFrancesco finished the last two seasons in 11. I assume he will start this season in the same digits,

  3. Bill M says:

    Wasn’t Eric Hanhold placed on waivers & picked up by Baltimore back in September?

  4. Gene F says:

    Brian Schneider has joined the major league staff as QC Coach. The 23 he wore as a Met, Nat and Phillie is vacant.

  5. Richie says:

    Mets.com offically updated the roster!

  6. Jim A says:

    Poor Max Maroff does not have a number!
    Apparently Stephen Villines and Ryder Ryan did not get camp invites.

    • Richie says:

      I think Maroff was in either 19 or 23 and that got bumped Bc the Carlos Beltran effect!

    • Kieran says:

      Assuming the numbers don’t shuffle around anymore, Moroff has got to be 7, 15, 33, or the next highest number available (87 I think). I’m gonna go with 33.

  7. Chris says:

    Hefner in #53, Accordo in #50.
