The team's farm system has improved noticeably in recent years, and some of the top prospects should be ready for their major league promotions this year.
Rookie catcher Travis d'Arnaud will begin his first full major league season as the Mets' starting catcher, and Wilmer Flores could get called up again if Ruben Tejada does not play well at shortstop.
On the pitching end, top prospects Noah Syndergaard and Rafael Montero both should be making their major league debuts by June or July. The two right-handers both have a lot of potential and could add to an already solid rotation.
Their eventual additions would likely result in either Matsuzaka or Mejia going to the bullpen midseason. So in a way, the bullpen could get strengthened, too, when Syndergaard and Montero are called up.
The future is really starting to come together for the Mets, and the sky is the limit to this team's potential for at least the next five or six seasons.
