Please use this thread all week to discuss any Mets-specific topic you wish.
MLB announced that there would be 28-man rosters for the month of April. The Mets have several different ways they could use these two extra spots, besides the default of just adding extra relievers. They could:
Carry a third catcher given the injury to James McCann
Carry a legitimate backup outfielder given the injury to Starling Marte
Carry an additional starting pitcher, given the injury to Taijuan Walker
Some might say that the extra relievers would be valuable, given the short Spring Training and the likelihood that starters will pitch even fewer innings than usual in the early going. My preference would still be to have relievers pitch multiple innings. That’s an easier plan to utilize if Seth Lugo is back to his old self.
