It's assumed that Asdrubal Cabrera will be the starting second baseman for the Mets on Opening Day. However, with the way Gavin Cecchini and Luis Guillorme have started the Grapefruit League season, Sandy Alderson might want to keep an open mind about his infield... According to NY Post reporter Joel Sherman, scouts are taking notice of Guillorme, who is currently ranked as the organization's fifth-best position prospect. In 11 at-bats this spring, Guillorme is batting .364 with a .429 OBP, one home run and five RBI. He's batting .296 with a .411 OBP in 54 spring at-bats during his career. "Scouts like the lefty swinger's actions on both sides of the ball," according to Sherman. Guillorme, 23, hit .283 with a .376 OBP and 21 extra base hits during 128 games in Double-A last year. "He's not the quickest middle infielder, but his hands, reflexes and instincts are as good as anyone's in the Minors," MLB.com's minor-league expert Jim Callis recently wrote. "He has solid range and arm strength, and he would have led the Double-A Eastern League in fielding percentage at both second (.983) and short (.968) last year if he had played enough at either position to qualify."
Should there be a competition for Mets at second base?
