Right Field: Grade A-

Really all corner outfield positions could be the same because any combination of Brandon Nimmo and Michael Conforto is an absolute win in my book. Conforto is an all-star and Nimmo is well on his way to being an all-star one day.

However, it does make the most sense to have Nimmo start the season in right field. While injuries often put him in center last year, right field is fine for him, although he really can do it all.

Here is what it’s listed as on

  1. Nimmo
  2. Conforto
  3. Keon Broxton
  4. Jeff McNeil

The only real issue here is that hopefully right field never gets to a point where it needs Jeff McNeil. I wouldn’t mind him playing there once in a while to shuffle things up, but a healthy Brandon Nimmo is better for the Mets because of .404 OBP and .996 Fielding percentage from 2018 could help the Mets play small ball well in 2019.

He is an ideal player to be in right field.  Nimmo is another one of those players where if he can get it going and stay healthy again the Mets are in for a big season, even bigger than we could even imagine.

Overall, the depth is very solid and it is one of the more talented positions on the Mets. The “A” grade is a high honor, but the Mets’ outfield is due to be important thus year.
