Can Matt Den Dekker sneak his way on to the Mets roster?

We heard all offseason that one of Terry Collins’ main focuses this spring would be to help Matt Den Dekker’s approach at the plate to help him lower his ugly strikeout numbers. That hasn’t been improved but Den Dekker has shown power, speed and elite gold glove defense in centerfield.

Den Dekker is already 25 so you wonder how many improvements he can make. If the Mets think he is a finished product he should make the roster because he is already better than some of their options especially defensively. That being said if the Mets think some time in Triple A Las Vegas will help him long term, then it makes sense for Den Dekker to spend a few months in the minors. Den Dekker’s glove is certainly major league ready but the question has always been about the bat for the senior signing out of Florida.

Den Dekker will be a major league player. The question is will he be a starting centerfielder or a defensive replacement/4th outfielder. Den Dekker’s adjustments at the plate will determine his future role.
