Jeff McNeil went 2-for-3 with a homer from the leadoff spot Tuesday against the Marlins.
McNeil has said he prefers batting second, but manager Luis Rojas has had him leading off in all six of his appearances this spring, with Brandon Nimmo usually filling the two hole. Both players are lefties, so that's not really playing a role in Rojas's thinking. One would think the Mets would prefer having McNeil up more frequently with men on base -- he did slug .531 last year -- but in the grand scheme of things, it shouldn't mean much. Maybe Rojas could get adventurous and put Nimmo ninth and Pete Alonso second. Mar 03 4:05 pm (EST)
- McNeil said Saturday that he expects to man third base on a full-time basis in 2020, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports. "I think I'll be playing a lot of third. I've gone through my normal offseason routine," McNeil said, referencing the wrist surgery he required in early October. "It was a good two-month rehab, then back to a normal offseason."
- McNeil (wrist) said Saturday that his injury is fully healed, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.
- McNeil (wrist) underwent surgery to repair a fractured bone in his right wrist on Wednesday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. All Jeff McNeil (L) News
