Sandy signs a veteran LHP or 2 this winter and Conlon is starting Game 2 for Bingo.

He said he's been told going forward he's a reliever, not just for ST competitions.

In Conlon's case I feel like this kind of means he's an organizational player.


I think Conlon could be this year's Sewald (lefty version). I think he's got a shot at being useful.

Yes, the main reasons being Syndergaard, Conforto, Rosario, Gsellman. Mets could get 12 WAR just from those 4.

Disagree. I don't think we would have been so quick to transition him if we didn't have plans for him pretty soon at the ML level. If anything happens to Blevins then Conlon is probably first up.

If Conlon is pitching any game for the Mets this year they are in trouble. They are transfering him to the pen because they are hoping that he somehow gains a few miles on his fastball. The Mets know that if he's a starter, he's not getting anyone out in the majors with an 87 MPH fastball.

We don't exactly have a ton of LHP depth. After Blevins, next guy up is probably Matt Purke (who I forgot we signed). Then it's Kyle Regnault, Kelly Secrest, etc. Conlon is probably more of a prospect than those guys as a deceptive lefty specialist, even with his velocity.

I think we're fine rolling with only one lefty in the pen, but if anything happens to Blevins, it's definitely possible that we see Conlon in the majors at some point.

Some tidbits from Jacob Resnick

Quote:
Desmond Lindsay looks fully healthy after an injury-plagued 2017, which included a concussion and season-ending ulnar nerve transposition surgery. The Mets’ 2015 second-round pick is slated to remain in St. Lucie with the High-A club to open the season.


Quote:
The ball absolutely explodes out of the hand of Christian James, the Mets’ 14th-round pick in 2016. Only 19, James struck out 58 batters against 16 walks in 51.2 innings for Kingsport in 2017. I’ve spoken to multiple scouts who rave about James’ stuff, and it wouldn’t surprise me to see him begin the 2018 season in Columbia’s rotation to see how he fares.


Quote:
Throwing next to James was a notable name, Jeff Diehl. After spending the first six seasons of his career as a catcher/first baseman/outfielder, Diehl is trying to resurrect his career by making the move to the mound. He reportedly hit the mid-to-upper 90s in two mop-up outings with St. Lucie last season, and the sound of his pitches hitting Brandon Brosher‘s mitt seemed to agree. Because of minor league roster rules, Diehl can spend the first 13 days of the GCL Mets’ season on their roster, and then will have to be transferred to Brooklyn (or any affiliate higher than Kingsport) on July 1.

Truthfully, if something happens to Blevins, the Wilpons should call Alderson into their office and give him his pink slip. How do you not bring in someone to back up Blevins especially when free agent prices dropped and a ton of free agents were given minor league contracts by 29 other teams. IMHO thats just as bad as Omar Minaya trading for JJ Putz when he knew he was hurt.

Nice to hear that about James. I think the mets have some sleepers in their pitching rotation that could step up this year and make the system not look quite so bad.

Szapucki returns from Tommy John maybe around July/August - fingers crossed.

Peterson (any word on him from camp yet?)

Kay is supposed to be looking good

James (above)

Hutchinson was a signing they were excited about.

Humphreys had a great year last year - not sure what his upside is.

It's thin but there's some potential in there.
