Obviously Mets fans are glad Alonso appears to be physically okay after the accident, though he was clearly distraught when speaking about the incident.
With the additions the Mets have made in the offseason, hopes are sky-high for the 2022 season. And Alonso figures to play a prominent role in the middle of a lineup that has added Starling Marte, Eduardo Escobar and Mark Canha.
