GCL Mets get their season started this afternoon

R: GCL Mets (0-0) @ GCL Nationals (0-0)
Friday 12:00 ET – TBA vs. TBA

The GCL squad will play at noon Monday through Saturday. The Mets will play a cycle of games with the Nationals, Cardinals, and Marlins squads.  The team affiliates scoreboard is a handy place to keep track of the early day rookie action, although the box scores are not as promptly updated as the upper levels.

The roster is now available and includes recent draft picks Dominic Smith, Andrew Church, Ivan Wilson, and Casey Meisner, as well as international signings Vicente Lupo, Jose Garcia, Elvis Sanchez, and Dickey trade throw in Wuilmer Beccara.  Some of last year’s draft picks find themselves in the GCL after struggling in Kingsport, including Branden Kaupe and Brandon Welch.
