According to Mike Puma of the New York Post the Mets have not forgotten "Jeff McNeil with the Jed Lowrie addition. "
McNeil played mainly infield last season, both in the majors and in both levels of the minor league he played. While the experience may not be significant, McNeil performed in eight outfield career games with 56.1
Little experience is better than no experience, but the Mets seem confident that McNeil can quickly take a new (ish) position. The cunning fielder showed athleticism at the second base, including a staggering show at Fenway Park with a jump over his shoulder and showed good speed which may be part of the Brodie Van Wagenen and his team of experts believe McNeil is more versatile when he was allowed last season.
