Mets OF prospect Matt den Dekker, coming back from a broken wrist, will return to baseball in a few weeks, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. Den Dekker really impressed with his glove in spring training and would probably be up with the Mets playing centerfield if he hadn’t got hurt instead of a platoon of Rick Ankiel and Juan Lagares.

When Den Dekker is healthy he will likely go to Triple A Las Vegas.

Rubin notes that den Dekker could begin playing baseball by early June, if not earlier.

  1. Michael Young says:

    Syeve – Encouraging news about Matt Den Dekker. Too bad he can’t hit and play CF. The Mets need an OFer that can hit, run and field. Mike

  2. Mike Davis says:

    I still believe they should have signed Bourn…

    • Steven Inman says:

      Yeah me too but again they were never going to sign him unless the draft pick issue was resolved and they never really pursued as much as they should have for some reason.
