Ackert: New Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen’s roster upgrades need to start with bullpen help … and a catcher

With Juan Lagares never having lived up to his 2014 Gold Glove potential and due $9 million this season and $500,000 buyout for 2020, he could also be a candidate to be replaced. A.J. Pollock, the 30-year-old center fielder who was with the Diamondbacks last season is a possibility. Pollock is coming off a down 2018, missing a month and a half with a broken thumb. He’s been injury-prone in the past, averaging just 94 games a season for the past five years and playing past 113 just once. It’s hard to tell if he will ever return to his 2015 All-Star form. There is a slight chance the Diamondbacks could make Pollock a qualifying offer, making the cost too much for his potential production.
