Michael Conforto Makes Major League Debut

Michael Conforto made his major league debut in Friday night’s 7-2 loss to the Dodgers. He got the call after Michael Cuddyer was finally put on the disabled list.

Michael Conforto made his major league debut Friday night.

He went 0-3 with three ground outs in the game. He hit a sharp shot to first on the first pitch he saw. He drove in a run in his second at bat. I didn’t see the third one.

He’s got a nice swing and hopefully he will get plenty of playing time until Cuddyer comes back (and hopefully after that). Terry Collins has already said Conforto will not play every day — for example, the great John Mayberry will start against tough lefty Gio Gonzalez next week. But Collins said it would not be a straight platoon.

That’s good because Michael Conforto is the future of the Mets. Let’s see what he can do.
