Now Commenting On:

Monday, the Las Vegas 51s, the Mets' AAA affiliate quietly posted an initial roster on the team's site.

There are no surprises here.

This rotation of Noah Syndergaard, Rafael Montero and Jacob deGrom is prospect-fun.

Also, the roster came out before the Mets officially signed 40-year-old Bobby Abreu. Also, the Mets signed Bobby Abreu to a minor league contract!

RotationNoah Syndergaard

Daisuke Matsuzaka

Rafael Montero

Logan Verrett


InfieldSS Wilmer Flores

2B Danny Muno

1B Allan Dykstra

UT Anthony Seratelli

1B/3B Zach Lutz

1B/3B/OF Eric Campbell

Wilmer and friends should get on base plenty. In all seriousness, this would be a good time for Flores to get his walk rate to 6% or better. 

OutfieldCesar Puello

Matt den Dekker

Kirk Nieuwenhuis

In addition to Abreu, Eric Campbell can also play left field.

This is now an interesting race between den Dekker and Nieuwenhuis who are basically racing/hitting against each other and Abreu in case the Mets need another outfielder. And of course, can Puello prove that 2013 was not a fluke?

The Mets' bullpen on Opening Day was bad. Some, maybe even most of these guys will get a shot in the big leagues over the course of 2014. Who will be first? Vic Black? Edgin? Goeddel? Reid?

Despite a tweet/story saying that had made the team, Jon Velasquez is not listed on the initial roster.
