Mets complete two game series sweep of Twins

While the Mets have made it clear they have little interest in trading assets under team control beyond this season, perhaps Dominic Smith is an exception. Smith, a first baseman, is blocked at his natural position by Pete Alonso. Even though he’s acquitted himself just fine to the outfield, the Mets feature a fair bit of depth there heading into 2020.

So as long as Smith continues to rake, the Mets will have little option but to listen to offers for a one-time first-round draft pick who’s still just 24 years old. Coming off the bench on Wednesday, Smith hit a go-ahead, pinch-hit, three-run homer in the seventh inning to lead the Mets to a 14-4 rout of the Twins, as well as a two-game series sweep at Target Field and the club’s fourth win in a row.
