Jed Lowrie's Mets debut could be on the horizon.
After being hampered by a sprained knee capsule throughout Spring Training, Lowrie is playing in rehab games and will move from High-A Port St. Lucie to Triple-A Syracuse. He should be in the Syracuse lineup on Saturday.
Lowrie played two games with St. Lucie, going 1-for-7 with an RBI. In addition to playing second and third base, Lowrie played 10 innings at shortstop. If he can play shortstop in the majors it will help the Mets shift pieces around as their infield gets crowded with the likes of Pete Alonso, Robinson Canó, Amed Rosario, Todd Frazier and J.D. Davis -- not to mention Jeff McNeil, who will mostly be in left field but is an infielder by trade.
Adeiny Hechavarria is also in that mix after he was called up Friday while Dom Smith was optioned to Triple-A.
The Mets signed Lowrie in the offseason to a two-year, $20 million contract.
