Nearing the halfway point of the season, it’s become clear that the New York Mets are headed for another summer of losing baseball.
The Mets currently stand at 30-42 despite winning six out of nine games and taking road series from the Phillies and Braves. The Mets are in fourth place in the NL East, where they’ve finished each of the last four seasons and are likely to remain this season.
However, there’s hope for the future in Flushing. Matt Harvey has quickly become one of the best pitchers in the game and should anchor the rotation for years to come. During his first career start, Zack Wheeler flashed the promise the Mets saw when he was acquired in 2011.
For the first time in years, the Mets plan to add veteran talent in free agency in the upcoming offseason. The second half of the season provides New York an opportunity to evaluate players and determine who is integral to the success of the organization.
Before the end of the season, expect the Mets to take extended looks at a number of their minor league prospects.
