Mets 1B prospect Pete Alonso hit his fourth home run of the spring on Sunday.

"I felt like last year I had a pretty solid year and I feel like this year I'm composing myself to have an even better year," Alonso recently told reporters in St. Lucie. 

Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen and manager Mickey Callaway have repeatedly said they want to leave Florida with the best 25 guys on the Opening Day roster.

Pete Alonso reacts to collision 00:00:35
Pete Alonso is making his case to be the Mets' starting first baseman. Today, he had a nasty collision with Josh Reddick at first base.

Mets first baseman Pete Alonso stands at 6 feet, 3 inches, and weighs 245 pounds. Astros outfielder Josh Reddick found out the hard way.

Reddick, who is only 6-foot-2, 195 pounds, "lost" that battle when he collided with Alonso at first base trying to reach on a bunt in the fifth inning of Monday's spring training game.

Two-man race heats up for Mets 00:01:17
Both Pete Alonso and Dominic Smith are having good springs, so the question becomes a little bit tougher, who makes the Opening Day roster?

Dominic Smith is the feel-good story in Mets' camp, hitting ropes to all fields and so far making the case the Sandy Alderson regime gave up on him too quickly, sticking him in the outfield mostly so Wilmer Flores could play first base.

Meanwhile, Pete Alonso -- not Peter -- is the guy whose at-bats are must-watch moments in Port St. Lucie. He hits the highest, most majestic home runs since Darryl Strawberry was launching moon-scrapers (or hitting the roof in Montreal on occasion) as anticipation builds for the rookie's arrival in New York.
