With the roster shaping up (conforto likely to open on the DL)

C: d'Arnaud, Plaw
1B: Gonzalez (unless a miracle happens)
2B: AsCab
SS: Rosario
3B: Frazier
LF: Cespedes
CF: Lagares/Nimmo
RF: Bruce
Bench: Reyes/Wilmer (4 man bench I assume)

Starters:

Thor, deGrom, Vargas, Harvey, Matz

Bullpen:

Familia, Ramos, Blevins, Swarzac - those 4 are obvious.

That leaves 4 pen spots open.

Wheeler (guaranteed money but 2 options remaining)
Gsellman
Lugo
Montero (out of options)
Callahan
Rhame
Robles (guaranteed money but 1 option remaining)
Sewald
Bashlor

and the not likely's
Bautista (too soon)
Flexen - starter
Oswalt - starter
Molina - starter . . . but may be better suited for the pen in the long run.

Feel free to select off the 40, but I don't think the mets will go there.

Def seems like a thread that should be merged into another one. Having said that, I totally agree that Wheeler appears headed for a move, prob to the O's. Calling that now. Wheeler to the O's for Jimmy Yacobonis and Brenan Hanifee.

I wish Harvey or Wheeler would embrace the bullpen. As starters, I trust Lugo more than those two to keep us in a game.

Anyway, I'd go:

Famila, Ramos, Swarzak and Blevins as the locks.

Personal preference selections would be:

Sewald - Knows how to pitch. Might not ever be an 8th inning guy, but someone needs to pitch the 6th or 7th inning, in both wins and losses. Rather him than gas cans like Robles or Montero.

Purke - By default, really. No particular affinity for him, but isn't he literally the only other LHP reliever in camp? Unless they bring in someone else, I think his chances of making the team are pretty high.

Lugo - I doubt he gets a fair shake for one of the rotation spots unless Callaway happens to take a liking to him. Seems like the organization, right or wrong, is hellbent on placating Harvey and Wheeler, results be damned. I just hope they keep him around in the pen as a long-relief/spot starter.

And if they carry an 8th bullpen arm:

Bashlor - That extra bullpen spot, in a perfect world, should only be out there in low-leverage situations so why not use it to see what you have in guys like Bashlor? He, or someone else, might just surprise you. If he's gets rocked for 3 or 4 outings, go to the next in line. Lord knows they have enough guys to look at after last year's deadline deals.

deGrom, Thor, Vargas, Harvey, Matz

I think Lugo is the 6th starter here, with Callaway's affinity with the curve ball and Lugo having the best curve on the team imo...but he will open in AAA.

Montero- they haven't shown one inkling of giving up on him, why now? becomes long man.
Callahan (think one of the kids will get a spot, unless they bring in another lefty)
Sewald- always been a fan, Heilman lite.
Robles- g'teed money gives him one up.
Swarzak
Blevins
Ramos
Familia

Lugo, Gsellman, Wheeler end up your top 3 in AAA.

Watson signed for 2/7M. I kid you not. That's a joke of a deal to pass up.

Structured in a way to keep the Giants under the luxury cap, but has easy to reach escalators that will make it 2/14 or, if he exercises the player option, 3/21.
