An interesting observation from the NY Times. The bold is mine.
As it stands, the Mets do not seem to possess a single everyday outfielder on their roster. They have three left-handed-hitting outfielders in Lucas Duda, Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Mike Baxter, and one right-handed bat, Collin Cowgill. This week, Cowgill became the team’s first significant off-season addition, when he was acquired from Oakland for Jefry Marte, a minor league infielder. Cowgill, 26, has a .255 average, a .654 on-base-plus-slugging percentage and just 2 home runs through 74 games in the majors.
