With many Mets players still at camp in Port St. Lucie, roughly 20 of them attended a meeting held by team officials on Monday morning, reported Mike Puma of the New York Post, who added that players who are still in town are working out.

According to Puma, Noah Syndergaard, Robert Gsellman, Walker Lockett, Jacob Rhame, and Franklyn Kilome were among the players in attendance on Monday.

While spring training sites remain accessible to players for now, the league sent out a memo on Sunday recommending "social distancing" in order to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The Mets made their first cuts of spring training on Friday, optioning four players to minor league camp and re-assigning seven others.

Among the most notable cuts were three of the team's top 15 prospects -- right-handed pitchers Franklyn Kilome and Jordan Humphreys and left-handed pitcher Thomas Szapucki. All three pitchers are already on the team's 40-man roster.

The players who were re-assigned to minor league camp were right-handed pitchers Matt Blackham, Stephen Nogosek, Nick Rumbelow, and Francisco Rios, catchers Austin Bossart and David Rodríguez, and outfielder Tim Tebow.

Robert Dominguez, the 18-year-old right-handed pitcher whose fastball already tops out at 99 mph, is ranked No. 17 on the Mets' Top 31 prospects list that was released by FanGraphs on Friday.

Dominguez, who was signed out of Venezuela this past July, also already has a plus curveball to go along with a developing changeup.

"He's only thrown a handful of times since the velo spike and not even all of the Mets upper level decision makers have seen him yet, but the talent level is on par with a compensation or second round pick," FanGraphs wrote in their scouting report. "There's just significantly more uncertainty and less track record than even later-developing players taken in that range, like Josh Wolf."

With the Mets interested in trading for Brewers closer Josh Hader, one question is how much the Mets would have to give up in order to land him. Another question is how much they should be willing to give up.

Arguably the best reliever in baseball, the 25-year-old Hader has immense value. He is entering his first of four arbitration years, and will likely get more expensive each season from 2020 to 2023.

It can be argued that with their farm system still in the midst of being rebuilt that the Mets should be focused on the free agent market when it comes to improving the bullpen. But if they are serious about going for Hader, it could make sense to also take back Ryan Braun (and a sizable portion of what he's owed) in order to provide the Brewers even more salary relief and make what they send to Milwaukee hurt less.
