Mets beat writer Pat Ragazzo tries his best to answer all fan questions from the latest issue of Mets Mailbag.

questions and answers

Julian Guilarte: @JulianGuilarte1: How far do you think Baty and Alvarez are in their development?

Brett Baty and Francisco Alvarez are both very close to playing in the big leagues every day. However, Alvarez could use a little more time to develop his framing and receiving skills behind the plate in Triple-A. Prognosis: Both players will start the season in Syracuse, but will move up to the major leagues as the season progresses.
