Every player’s name links to their career statistics. I have only included prospects who have yet to make their major league debut, so prospects such as Wilmer Flores, Jeurys Familia and Wilfredo Tovar are not present. The vast major league and life all pro passer football experience went beyond the starting eight. The bench wasn’t full of younger players hoping for their shot either. Damion Easley and Jose Valentin each played 2007 at age 37. Catcher Mike Difelice beat them out with 38 candles on his birthday cake.
The Mets’ starting pitching depth is currently stable while the team is lacking proven bullpen arms, so don’t be surprised to see Mazzoni converted to a full-time reliever in 2014. DeGrom has been used as a starter throughout his minor league career. He has the potential to become a No. 3 starter at the major league level, but becoming a No. 4 or No. 5 starter is more likely.

On September 12, the Mets were 21 games over .500 with a record of 83–62. Over the last three weeks of the baseball season, they won only five games. The Padres have been a streaky team all year and haven’t lived up to the post-trade deadline hype, but they’re still as dangerous as any team in the league. Juan Soto is a Met-killer and remains one of the best players in the league, despite a down year.
Before Monday’s game, they must reduce their roster size to 26. This lot of older position players had company from the mound. Although the Mets did have a few younger pitchers, they also had a pair of 41-year-olds. Tom Glavine and Orlando Hernandez each helped to represent the over-the-hill club. From the main starting eight, the Mets had only two younger players. This was the age 24 season for Jose Reyes and David Wright, the lone players below 30 with 230+ plate appearances.
