Mets spring training storylines so far | The Mets Pod


Mets spring training is in full swing, and Episode 50 of The Mets Pod checks in on everything that’s happening in Port St. Lucie. Connor Rogers and Joe DeMayo talk about stories from camp such as Kodai Senga, the health of Starling Marte and Darin Ruf, early looks at Justin Verlander, and Carlos Beltran’s return to the organization.

The guys also react to owner Steve Cohen’s comments to the media, payroll issues throughout MLB, and Max Scherzer discussing his contract opt-out after the season. Connor and Joe then put the spring spotlight on outfield prospect Alex Ramirez, and examine what he can gain by spending time this year in big league camp.

Later, the show opens up the Mailbag, with questions answered about which Mets pitching prospects could make a big leap in 2023, a possible future free agency chase of Manny Machado versus seeing things through with Brett Baty, and the organization’s investments in player development.
