Third Base: Grade B-

The hot corner is more likely to be like hot potato for the Mets this season. The number one player is projected to be Jed Lowrie. Then Frazier behind him. After that, it is kind of up in the air.

My personal guess is that due to injuries it’ll be Adeiny Hechavarria who gets the nod on Opening Day. Anything after that, is just fair game. It would make way more sense for the more versatile J.D. Davis to come off the bench in case other needs were to fill up.

With that, here is how it is projected:

  1. Jed Lowrie
  2. Frazier
  3. McNeil
  4. Hechavarria

The fact that there are four options is really impressive. Brodie wanted depth so he got it and it is already being tested. It kind of works out that all these players could play third. And this is random, but don’t forget that Hechavarria spent time with the Yankees last year, he will be able to handle New York just fine.

Overall, the depth is what carries this grade. All season, the Mets will have a formidable player at third base. If it is Lowrie who ends up playing there most of the time, that is arguably an upgrade from what they had last year.

Oh, do not forget about T.J. Rivera, he is some where lurking.
