Now that the 2013 season has concluded for the New York Mets, we have taken a look at overall breakdowns for the offense, starting pitching, and bullpen this past season. We will now take a look at every player on the roster from A (David Aardsma) to Y (Eric Young Jr) as our Mets 101 Player Review Series returns for its third year. In each review we will take a look at the player's 2013 performance and what role, if any, they can expect to have with the Mets in 2014. We continue our series today a look at catcher Juan Centeno
Mets 101 Player Review: Juan Centeno
2013 Stats:4 G, 10 PA, 3 H, 1 RBI, .300 Avg. 1 K
2013 Story:A September call up, Centeno got his first taste of major league action in the tail end of the 2013 season. He made his major league debut on September 18, 2013 against the San Francisco Giants, going 2 for 4 with two singles, and his first career RBI. In 67 games for Triple-A Las Vegas this year, he hit .305 (65-213) with 10 doubles and 28 RBI.
2013 Grade: Incomplete. Its tough to judge Centeno on just four games and ten plate appearances. He looks like he calls a good game and is very sound behind the plate fundamentally. While he doesn’t have much, if any power, he makes contact, works counts and does other things that make him a successful player.
Contract Status:Pre-Arbitration Eligible
Odds of Returning:40%
2014 Role:We all know that Travis d’Arnaud will be the Mets’ starting catcher for the foreseeable future. Centeno will be in the running to win the backup catcher job in spring training 2014. If he doesn’t win the job, he will catch down in the minors.
