There will be more than 4,000 square feet of direct view LCD screens and 1,300 4K displays throughout the stadium. These changes will make Citi Field the most technologically advanced ball park in the majors.
The Mets also made a big splash off the field with their roster. The New York Mets strengthened both their pitching and hitting.
They traded for Carlos Carrasco and Francisco Lindor. Lindor looks to turn things around after finishing the season really poorly for the Mets in 2021. Meanwhile, Carrasco has been battling the injury bug for many seasons now. But when healthy, Carlos Carrasco has proven he is a solid middle of the rotation guy.
During the off season, the Mets set their sights even higher. They signed Eduardo Escobar. Escobar hit 28 home runs with 90 runs batted in last season, splitting time between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Milwaukee Brewers. Escobar hit a career-high 35 home runs and drove in 118 runs back in 2019. So, he clearly adds some pop to a Mets lineup in desperate need of it.
Then, New York signed free agent Max Scherzer. This is the one of the biggest moves of the off season, across all of the MLB. Scherzer bounced back last season and once again put up Cy Young type numbers, going 15-4 with a 2.46 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP.
Alongside Jacob DeGrom, that might be the most dominant one-two punch at the top of any rotation in baseball. It will give fans at Citi Field plenty to cheer about. They’ll be able to see the amazing performances on LCD screens anywhere in the park.
