New NL Rule! So Who Should Be The New York Mets DH For 2022?
New NL Rule! So Who Should Be The New York Mets DH For 2022?
On Thursday, MLB commissioner Rob Manfred announced the adoption of the universal DH rule for 2022. Now National League pitchers will no longer have to hit. So, who will fill that role with the Mets? Given the New York's endlessly deep pockets, thanks to billionaire owner Steve Cohen's determination to bring a winning team to Cit Field, there are quite a few roads to pursue an answer. The Amazin's have several internal designated hitter options, given the number of defensively challenged players that fill their current 40-man roster. At times, superstar right-handed pitcher Jacob deGrom has been the best hitter in the Mets line-up, making this question even more interesting.

Going deep into games in today's version of Major League Baseball, I would guess would be a pitcher getting into the 6th inning. Before, if you didn't complete 6 innings, it wasn't considered a quality start. Today, New York Mets starting pitcher Marcus Stroman went "old school." Stroman plunked the first batter of the game and then basically shut the Cincinnati Reds down.
