Schwarber looks like he lost 60+ pounds - I agree that is probably not healthy for a six month period.

Those pictures could also be a little deceiving. Wind hitting the jersey makes him look bigger than he actually was in the left, while shadows, arm positioning, anf angle of his body makes him look smaller than he actually is on the right.

Either way, it appears that he did a lot to change his conditioning over the off season. He said he worked a lot on increasing agility to be a better athlete in the field.

Gerson Bautista was hyped up in an article that came out late last night:

I imagine the Mets are pushing a narrative of him as somebody to watch.

And Lagares is hurt again with now a “strained” left hamstring. New training staff same issues with Juan. It’s always one injury or another for him. A new swing isn’t helpful if you can’t use it

Players missing games in the beginning of ST due to minor injuries is normal :)

Not sure if it's been mentioned in the in-game threads, but has anyone noticed that Plawecki looks more jacked this year? He has Tebow neck.

Prediction:

Plawecki will take over #1 catcher role by end of April.

I see it more as being a 50/50 share.

I'm cautiously optimistic that Plaw's bat turns around this year. He's got the low K rate going for him, which is something and he's a strong guy.

That's if they're both bad. The bullish prediction is that one of them shows himself to be a capable starter. Considering that catchers often take forever to mature offensively, it's not outside the realm of possibility.

I've always liked his swing, I think he got more confidence at the end of last year. I definitely think he can hit .280 with a little pop in the ML and these days that automatically makes you a good hitting catcher.
