The Mets had a busy weekend acquiring a handful of players from a number of teams -- targeting depth for their bench by trading pieces in their minor league system. Get to know the newest Mets and what they'll add to New York's major league roster in 2019.
Cody Bohanek, IN
Bohanek, 23, is a minor league infielder drafted in the 30th round by the Astros in 2017. He has nine home runs, 17 doubles, 55 RBIs and 18 stolen bases in 177 career minor league games. He can serve the Mets as a utility player with experience playing at second base, third base and shortstop in the minors.
Keon Broxton, OF
Broxton, 28, is known for his defensive acrobatics in center field. He spent parts of three years with the Brewers and hit 20 home runs in 2017 across 143 games -- his best season with Milwaukee. Broxton is consistently among one of MLB's fastest players in baseball, according to Baseball Savant.
Arquimedes Caminero, RHP
Caminero, 31, is no stranger to MLB but he compiled 40 saves with a 3.18 ERA as the Yomiuri Giants' closer in the Japanese Central League over the past two seasons. The right-hander played parts of four seasons in the majors for the Pirates, Marlins and Mariners. Caminero is pitching in the Domincan winter league after coming off surgery on his right elbow. The right-hander will look to land a spot in the Mets' bullpen.
J.D. Davis, 3B
Davis, 25, was drafted by the Astros in the third round of the 2014 Draft. He won the Pacific Coast League batting title last season, hitting .342 with Triple-A Fresno. He entered the Majors in 2017 and slashed .194/.260/.321 with five homers across 66 big league games over the past two seasons. Interestingly, Davis has experience as a pitcher. He throws in the low-90s and has a 13.5K/9 rate, according to MLB.com.
Sam Haggerty, 2B
Haggerty, 24, was selected by the Indians in the 24th round of the 2015 First-Year Player Draft out of the University of New Mexico. Last season, he hit .243 with 21 doubles, four homers and 24 stolen bases in 87 games for Double-A Akron as a natural second baseman. He was a postseason All-Star for the Carolina League in 2017 after batting .253 with three homers, 27 doubles, 13 triples and 49 stolen bases in 112 games with Class A Advanced Lynchburg.
Rymer Liriano, OF
Liriano, 27, is a former top prospect who played for the Padres and White Sox. He owns a .220 career average in 59 games over parts of two seasons in the majors. He hit 20 home runs with 11 stolen bases in 102 games last year as an outfielder with the Colorado Springs Sky Sox, Milwaukee's Triple-A affiliate.
Walker Lockett, RHP
Lockett, 24, was selected by San Diego as a fourth round Draft pick in 2012. The right-hander made his big league debut last year, making four appearances -- including three starts -- with the Padres. Lockett led the Pacific Coast League last season in starts (23), innings (133 1/3) and strikeouts (118), going 5-9 with a 4.73 ERA.
