It’s hard to believe the New York Mets have been playing regular-season games for nearly a month, but it’s true.
The big league squad currently owns a 14-11 record after a stretch of tough games against 2013 playoff teams. They find themselves three games out of first place in the National League East.
Full-season minor league affiliates are also in full swing, with a number of top organizational prospects continuing their development. Short-season teams such as the Kingsport Mets, Brooklyn Cyclones and the Gulf Coast League Mets won’t start until June.
As we enter the month of May, some minor leaguers will continue showing why they deserve getting a promotion to the next level, which for some could mean the major leagues. Others will show they’re not yet ready to take that next step.
