Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen has made it clear that top prospect 1B Peter Alonso will have a good shot to win the Opening Day job out of Spring Training this year. And that's the only goal he has in mind at the moment.
Alonso joined "Mets Hot Stove" on Thursday to discuss what his mindset is like as his trip to Port St. Lucie is right around the corner.
"I want to go into Spring Training and I want to have the mindset that I'm going to win the job," Alonso said. "I'm going to work hard and do the best to my ability to perform while on the field and show that I'm ready. I want to be the guy."
