The New York Mets have dealt with several injuries this season. But with several players set to return, which players may not be on the roster by July 1?

The New York Mets have been hit early and often by the injury bug so far in 2023. Thought to be one of the top teams contending for the National League crown this season, the Mets are barely staying afloat in their own division.

The Atlanta Braves are outpacing the Mets at the moment, and the Miami Marlins are proving to be a thorn in the side of nearly every team in the National League East Division.

Thankfully, for the Mets, a few of their players are ready to return from injury. Unfortunately, however, those returning players will need a roster spot. Anyone who’s been underperforming may be out of time once July 1st arrives. Which three New York Mets players won’t be on the roster by July 1st?

Perhaps no aspect of this year’s New York Mets team has been hit harder than the starting rotation. Max Scherzer missed 10 games due to a suspension, Justin Verlander was injured to begin the season, and free agent signee Jose Quintana began the season on the IL.

But all signs point to Quintana’s return sometime in the near future. That could be big trouble for right-handed starter Tylor Megill.

A spot-starter at best, Megill has already allowed more home runs in 2023 (8) than he did all of last season (8). Megill’s past two starts haven’t seen the 27-year-old get past the fourth inning.

Megill is piling up the walks this season as well. The former eighth-round draft pick has allowed 27 free passes. According to FanGraphs, Tylor Megill’s FIP is sitting at nearly 6.00. That’s not going to be good enough, even for a back-of-the-rotation pitcher like Megill.
