The New York Mets are hoping for a much better showing in 2024.

But for that to happen they need their roster to stay healthy.

So far, that has not been the case with their starting pitchers, as they lost ace Kodai Senga to a shoulder injury.

He is expected to miss at least the first month of the season.

So the Mets will be shorthanded at one of the most important spots to start the year.

The Mets have already made a few decisions about players who will not make the Opening Day roster.

One popular name is Trayce Thompson.

According to Anthony DiComo, Thompson is one of six players the Mets decided to cut recently.

Throughout his career, Thompson has jumped from team to team.

He has had some success in the majors but has not been able to find a long-term home.

Any team looking for a right-handed platoon outfielder should be interested in Thompson.

It will be interesting to see if he is picked up by anyone else before Opening Day.

As for the Mets, it will be interesting to see who they keep on their roster for Opening Day.

We know they will have Pete Alonso, Francisco Lindor, and Brandon Nimmo, to name a few.

But, it is the supporting cast that will be important.

There is no question they will have their work cut out for them this year.

Both the Braves and Phillies have better rosters.

So the Mets will need to surprise some people this year if they hope to get into the playoffs.
