den Dekker sharing glove story


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2013) Mets outfield prospect Matt den Dekker has earned plenty of acclaim for his defensive prowess this spring which has resulted in the thefts of several extra-base hits, including home runs. "Defensively, I'm not sure we've got anybody better," manager Terry Collins told MLB.com. But while the diving catches might thrill fans, den Dekker is also being judged on his offensive merit -- the glaring problem area for the 25-year-old. He is hitting just .222 in Grapefruit League play with more strikeouts (10) than total bases (nine) through 10 games. And with the Mets desperately starved for offensive production, keeping a defensive specialist on the roster is hardly an option. "Everybody talks about platooning," Collins said. "But if you're going to be a platoon player, you've got to be able to do something off the bench in the National League -- not just play defense."
