Trivia Friday: Mets 2018 Third Basemen

When the Mets starting third baseman hit the disabled list, Mets fans were clamoring for Jeff McNeil to get called-up to the majors.  Instead of calling him up, the Mets informed everyone they view McNeil strictly as a second baseman.  Then in pure Mets fashion, they put McNeil at third base later that week.

With the Mets not viewing McNeil as a third baseman, we should look to who they believe is capable of playing third base.  In total, the Mets have had seven different players play third.  Can you name them?  Good luck!


Todd Frazier Jose Reyes Luis Guillorme Phillip Evans Wilmer Flores Ty Kelly Jose Bautista

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Range_factor

    How is a 2.4 Range Factor at third base, .950 fielding ?

    Flores 1.9
    Reyes 1.28

    Is there anything hood there?

      Range factor is a tool, but there are better ones like DRS and UZR.

      Overall, what all the metrics show is Flores has much better range than anticipated

        So with Cespedes and Bruce’s return – Nimmo a starter if not an All Star the plan was that Wilmer would need ABATS, Frazier to return and that McNeil could have more seasoning in the PCL before Cabrera was shipped out?
