6 Former Mets To Contend For 2023 World Series

From winning over 100 games in 2022 to finishing below .500% with close to 100 losses in 2023 with virtually the same roster; the New York Mets are the definition of an inconsistent baseball team.


The New York Mets may not have made it to the postseason, but they have 6 former players who will be contending for the World Series.


D-Backs

Miguel Castro and Tommy Pham highlight Mets’ alumni on the Diamondbacks.


Castro played a season-and-a-half with the Citi Field team, posting a 3.52 ERA in 79.1 innings that was accompanied by a 4-6 record.


Pham was traded from the Mets to the Diamondbacks right before the 2023 trade deadline. The journeyman outfielder’s batting average dipped post-trade: Pham hit .268 with New York in 79 games and .241 in 50 games with the D-Backs.


Other former Mets players on the D-Backs are Paul Sewald (2017-2020 | 5.50 ERA in 147.1 IP), and Joe Mantiply (2009 MLB Draftee by NYM, 48th Round).


Rangers

Max Scherzer was also a 2023 trade deadline loss by the Mets. Mad Max just couldn’t put up consistent numbers during his short tenure in New York.


Travis Jankowski played in 43 games with the New York Mets in 2022, batting a .167 with a .452 OPS. In 107 games this season with the Rangers, Jankowski hit a .263 with a .689 OPS for a career-best season.
