What the Mets need the most right now is for Alvarez and Baty to make the same impact this year that the Braves’ kids had the last few years. That happens, they are as good as anybody.

That’s a BIG ask. William Contreras (24 & All-Star)& Austin Riley (25 & All-Star)

Contreras: 376 AB- 20 HR/ 45 rbi/ .278/.354/.506 with a 37% CS defensively.

Riley: He finished the 2021 season hitting .303 with 33 home runs (10th in the NL), 107 RBIs (2nd), 168 strikeouts (4th), and a .898 OPS, joining Eddie Mathews and Chipper Jones as the only Atlanta third basemen to hit .300 with at least 30 home runs and 100 RBIs in a season at the age of 24 or younger

 

I’d settle foe solid D and hit in the .250 range with 10-12 dingers and 45 rbi while keeping the strikeouts to <60 with 250-300 AB

I would bet if Alvarez is as good as advertised he”ll easily surpass Contreras numbers and in a few years will put up numbers , at least power numbers, like Riley. I envision Baty as the # 3 hitter going forward, a good RBI guy, maybe 15ish he’s/ yr, kind of like Keith was. The wildcard sounds like the C we took last year. Sounds like a real hitter.

Unfortunately 3rd base is always a Power Hitter position in MLB(unless the kid is a gold glove level player) . Similar to 1st. Maybe Mauricio projects for 3rd and Baty to the OF if his numbers are Cahna like

Mets minors summary:

Parada had an OPS of .880 in 55 at bats.

Jett Williams had an OPS of .803 in 33 at bats.

Blade Tillwell showed a good arm but iffy command.

Nick Morabito did not do much in the FCL, .303 OPS.

Baty, Alvarez and Vientos should play significant part and roles next year if they don’t get dealt. Madgum should be the Mets 5th outfielder coming out of ST.

Mauricio still a couple of years away.

Allen has not pitched since 2019 and did not pitched this year. 

Calvin Ziegler pitched in low A where he had some great swing and a miss stuff striking out 70 batter in 46 innings but he also walked 35 guys. Command is an issue but he showed a good arm from reports. 

Mike Vasil pitched at both low A and High A, he pitched better at low A and had better results. Likely starts at Brooklyn again next year.

Joel Diaz who is only 18 pitched at low A and while the numbers don’t look good, I do believe he finished strong and had some good reports on his stuff. He is really young and probably got pushed a bit aggressive this year.

Dominic Hamel also pitched between low A and High A and pitched better for Brooklyn. 

And Jose Butto pitched at AA and AAA and got his one game in the majors. He is a solid depth arm for next year, he clearly was not ready or nerves got him on his one start. 

Pitching is thin in the Mets system most of these guys rank at the bottom of the top 10 or on the top 15 range.

Will be interesting to see what they do with Alvarez and Parada in Port St Lucie. If Parada looks as legit as they think he is they might be better off leaving Alvarez down to not damage his value. Have to think he'd be the first thing demanded in any trade, especially Ohtani or the pitcher in Milwaukee. 

Who knows what will happen with Baty but Mauricio seems to be the guy they need to make some decisions about sooner than later.

https://risingapple.com/posts/ny-mets-brooks-raley-stats-trade

Since 2020, newly acquired Mets pitcher Brooks Raley has posted an outstanding 4.14 strikeout to walk ratio, well above the league average of 2.68.

Since returning to the major leagues after five seasons in Japan, Raley has thrown lots of strikes and hasn't walked many, and that has played a big role in his success, especially last season when his ERA dropped from 4.78 in 2021 to 2.68 in 2022 when he cut his home runs allowed in half.

In fact, in each of his three seasons in the majors, he had a strikeout-to-walk ratio over 4.0, so the Mets were looking for consistency and dependability in big spots. That was something the Mets could have used at the trade deadline and from Joely Rodriguez, now with the Red Sox. Rodriguez issued 4.6 walks per nine frames as a Met last year while Raley allowed 2.5, so this is part of the proof he is an upgrade.

Brooks Raley posted a .155 batting average against lefties last season.

Raley was tremendous last season when facing lefty hitters. In addition to his sparkling batting average against, he had a 25-to-3 strikeout to walk ratio and a .200 on-base percentage against.

Raley adds a different dimension to what is a patchwork experiment in the Mets bullpen, as the Mets have seeked to replace several notable relievers from their 2022 bullpen up for free agency. And make no mistake, the Mets' bullpen next year will look completely different than what it was last year.

Before Wednesday, the Mets had just three left-handed pitchers on their 40-man roster in David Peterson, Joey Lucchesi, and Tayler Saucedo; two of them were not projected to make the 40-man roster. Now they have five with Raley and Jose Quintana, whom the Mets added in free agency on Wednesday.

Brooks Raley is one of the best pitchers in yielding soft contact in baseball, as his average exit velocity against is 84.5 mph since 2020.

As agonizing as it was to see Joely Rodriguez struggle at times to throw for strikes, one of his strengths was inducing soft contact. Rodriguez posted a personal best average exit velocity of 85.3 mph with the Mets last year. So with Rodriguez gone, the Mets had to replace a strong soft contact pitcher, and that is what Raley brings to the table.

In 2020 and 2021, Raley ranked in the 100th percentile in average velocity and in the 85th percentile in 2022. It helps when his sinker and changeup are both effective pitches to get hitters out on at a remarkable clip. The Mets should be excited for what Raley will bring out of Buck Showalter's bullpen for 2023.

Report: Mets Send Mangum To Marlins To Complete Previous Trade

The New York Mets have traded outfielder Jake Mangum to the Miami Marlins to complete the trade for Elieser Hernándezand Jeff Brigham, as first reported by Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald.  This comes on the heels of Mangum not being selected by any team Wednesday in the Rule 5 draft.

Mangum, 26, was the Mets 2019 fourth-round draft pick out of Mississippi State University. Entering the 2022 season, MMNranked him as the Mets 16th-best prospect.

This past season, Mangum only played in 72 games due to a stress reaction in his spine. When he returned to the field, it did not seem to inhibit his performance.

Feels so good having an owner that actually loves his team and wants to see them win. Our payroll is very frontloaded too so we have flexibility for big deals/ locking up our guys in the future. 

The philosophy seems to revolve around cultivating a sustained, healthy farm system while using money to fill in gaps without sacrificing that said farm system in a trade. The model for many franchises that have sustained success in the current day. 

I'm really excited about this team in the coming years. deGrom leaving sucks, but I couldn't be happier with how things have turned out other than that.

i hope this guy is good. we dont have a good track record with Japanese players.

 

best part is hearing the Yankees fans cry that we got him. how does it feel to have a owner who doesnt want to spend alot of money? HAHAHAHHA

yeah i know about Judge but your not signing any other big name guys. when you go to the dollar store to get your next FA tell them you know the Mets who used to shop there, they might give you a discount. LOL

Hopefully Bassit gets signed by the Giants or some other team giving us an additional 2 1st round picks. Carasco can be traded if need be for some young hitting or RP talent as well

Bassit to Toronto…4 yrs. Braves traded for A’s C Murphy. Don’t know who they gave up.
