Last year we wrote about how Paul Sewald had the strongest chance of making the Mets roster at some point in 2017 as a Non-Roster Invite to Spring Training. The Mets needed him and he answered. He wasn’t fantastic, but he was reliable.
His role this year is confusing, and his tenure may be brief as the Mets look to get some of their arms back from the DL, what do the computers think he’ll do?
The computers see him improving quite a bit but seeing less time. Honestly, if he sees 65 innings this year one of two things happened: he either is performing vastly above expectations, or something went terribly wrong with the Mets. His future with the Mets is still bright and 2019 looks to be his year.
