Noah Syndergaards– Luis Rojas mentioned that Noah Syndergaard recovery from Tommy John is progressing well and that it is “on schedule or maybe little bit ahead of schedule.” Alderson expects that a reasonable return date to the MLB for Thor would be around June.
The Mets are expected to add a starter or two either by free agency or trade. As of right now the rotation is looking to be deGrom, Stroman, Peterson, Matz, and Lugo/Oswalt. Adding a couple of starters can push Lugo and Matz to the bullpen would add much needed LHP as they currently do not have any available.
Amed Rosario– Rojas mentioned that Rosario is going to take reps at 3B in addition to SS and there are no plans to move him to the OF. (Via Tweet DiComo).
After a disappointing 2020 season, Rosario starting SS job is at jeopardy with the emerging prospect Andres Gimenez looking to be the man to hold the starting role. Gimenez made some spectacular defensive plays for the defensively challenged Mets. He also added improved speed and had a surprisingly explosive bat and therefore should be expected to the opening day SS.
