Binghamton Mets (Almost) Opening Day Roster

bmetslogoThe B-Mets did not release their roster officially, but thanks to tweets from players and a roster preview story from beat writer Lynn Worthy, we can get pretty close to estimating the complete roster. The best prospect in the group is C Kevin Plawecki, my #11 Mets prospect.

 

Catchers
Kevin Plawecki
Blake Forsythe
Xorge Carillo

 

OF
Darrell Ceciliani
Cory Vaughn
Travis Taijeron
Kyle Johnson

 

Infield
SS Wilfredo Tovar
SS/2B Matt Reynolds
1B Jayce Boyd
1B Matt Clark
3B Dustin Lawley (will also see time in OF)

Rotation
LHP Darin Gorski
RHP Logan Verrett
RHP Matt Bowman
RHP Rainy Lara
RHP Tyler Pill
RHP Greg Peavey

Bullpen
LHP Jack Leathersich
LHP Adam Kolarek
LHP TJ Chism
LHP Hamilton Bennett
LHP Angel Cuan
RHP Chasen Bradford
RHP Cody Satterwhite (source)

 

The list above has 24 players. Binghamton will open with 25, and presumably, I missed a backup infielder, someone like Josh Rodriguez, or TJ Rivera.

The addition of Cody Satterwhite takes this roster to 25 players, 13 pitchers and 12 position players of whom there are three catchers. The Mets could well use the phantom DL to stretch this roster with an extra arm or infielder.

12:40 pm: Adding Sandoval takes this roster to 26 players. It seems likely that only two catchers will be active at a given time.

The guy who seems like he belongs here is RHP Hansel Robles. In his age 22 season in the Florida State League, he ran a 3.72 ERA in 16 games over 84.2 innings with a 66 K/29 BB ratio. That’s not the stuff of stardom, but I figured it would be good enough for a trip to Binghamton, unless he is hurt.
