It was no surprise that the Mets were going to face some decisions in regards to their roster in the very near future. A spot needed to be cleared for Zack Wheeler and also the returns of Scott Atchison and Pedro Feliciano seemed to be fast approaching.

Yesterday, I pretty much concluded, in a post you can read below, that reliever Greg Burke has just about locked up one of the final spots in the Mets bullpen. In the 9-1 loss to the Tigers on Thursday, Burke was brought in to get a critical out against one of the best hitters in the game, Miguel Cabrera.

New acquisition Greg Burke aims for bullpen job with Mets

Looking for a topic to write about, I went over to the official Mets site to look at how the guys playing Winter Ball did. Usually you can find someone hitting the cover off the ball but of the 16 hitters in various leagues, the highest OPS was the .834 posted by Juan Carlos Gamboa in the Mexican-Pacific League.
