Conforto will work on improving against left-handed pitchers this spring as he attempts to win a spot on the 25-man roster, the New York Post reports. "He just needs at-bats against left-handed pitching, he knows he can hit them, he's hit them his whole life," hitting coach Kevin Long said Friday. "You have got to get the opportunity to do it, and when you do it, I don't think it's the end of the world if he has an 0-for-4 day against them, but it would be nice to be able to get him some at-bats against lefties and get him comfortable."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Yoenis Cespedes receives a lot of the credit for the Mets' second-half offensive surge, but Conforto's contributions cannot be overlooked. After his July 24 arrival from Double-A, Conforto quickly emerged as a valuable source of power, smacking 23 extra-base hits in 174 at-bats, while maintaining a near-league-average contact rate. Sure, he may have benefited from limited exposure to left-handed pitching (14 at-bats), and the average could fall if he moves into an everyday role in left field with Michael Cuddyer retired, but Conforto did not have dramatic lefty/righty splits in his two minor-league seasons. In fact, he had slightly better numbers against lefties (.904 OPS) than against righties (.897 OPS) with Binghamton prior to his callup. Given what he did in his first exposure to big-league pitching, his age and handle of the strike zone, there is reason to think he will continue to thrive with a full season's worth of at-bats near the middle of the Mets' lineup.

2015

Conforto was drafted as a bat-first outfielder with the 10th overall pick in 2014 out of Oregon State. He won’t be ranked highly on national prospect lists as he profiles as a left fielder, but the impact potential on offense is real. He slashed .331/.403/.448 with three home runs in 186 plate appearances at short season Brooklyn, and figures to start 2015 at Low-A. Entering his age-22 season, Conforto has a chance to move fast. Considering defense won’t be a primary focus and given his hit and power tools, which both project as plus, he could get to Double-A by the end of the season, with a chance to debut with the Mets in the summer of 2016. At his peak, Conforto could provide a .285 average with 25 home runs, so he should be targeted in the early rounds of dynasty leagues this year.
