    2K19 Peter Alonso

    Does the 24 year old take over the starting role this year?

    Massive power. Not so good on BA.

    Are you guys buyers this year?

    Lowrie and Cano are presumptive starters at 3B and 2B. Todd Frazier is still hanging around. And so Alonso has to fight with Frazier and Jeff McNeil for whatever's left. I don't think Alonso gets a ton of ABs this year, which is a shame.

    how could you not include Dom Smith in this?

    Ugh. Even before he flopped, he was a middling MLB bat, and an unacceptable 1B bat. I can't see him getting more than the 143 ABs he got last year, probably much less, barring injury to other players.

    Lowrie will likely hit the DL, and those ABs will probably trickle down to Alonso. Frazier is the real roadblock here. Teams like the Mets always favor the veteran, so even if he's bad in ST and Alonso hits a ton, Frazier will still likely start the season at 1B. It's a terrible choice that I'm pretty sure the Mets will make. I think McNeil will get lots of ABs as a supersub, but few at 1B.

    Unfortunately, Alonso is stuck at 1B and there is a logjam there that will have to be cleared before he can make his mark.

    On the bright side he seems to be the perfect dh.

    McNeil will play a lot of OF, particularly with Cespedes in trouble.

    JD Davis and TJ Rivera (.304 career MLB AVG) also are around chasing 1B and other INF ABs.

    I wouldn't be a buyer of Alonso in a re-draft league, unless maybe an end-game dice-roll.

    for OF, Mets have Conforto, Nimmo, Lagares and Broxton. but McNeil will play some out there - especially in the first half with no Cespedes.

    Is he even an OF? And with Conforto and Nimmo, can he play center? That's the only spot available if you don't want to curtail their AB's.

    McNeil is a very good all-around athlete; he'll be able to handle a corner at CitiField.
    Not only are Lagares and Broxton CFs, but Nimmo and especially Conforto surprisingly can fake it there as well.

    If he is such a good athlete, why is he a butcher in the infield?
