Lagares’ oblique may be clearing Conforto’s path to majorsmc

Sat, 25 Mar 2017 16:54:37 -0400

KISSIMMEE, Fla. — The Mets’ center-field situation grew even murkier on Saturday — which could lead to Michael Conforto making the Opening Day roster. Juan Lagares suffered a strained left oblique while running out a foul ball in a 3-0 win over the Braves, and although Lagares said he didn’t think the injury was serious, Terry...

Jacob deGrom looks to Bartolo Colon for season’s goalJacob deGrom

Sat, 25 Mar 2017 15:57:41 -0400

PORT ST. LUCIE — Jacob deGrom wants to be just like Bartolo Colon. But that doesn’t mean trying to frustrate hitters with an 88-mph two-seam fastball or becoming the jovial life of the party with whom fans are enamored. DeGrom wants to eat – innings – like Colon. “I think the goal is to get...

Why Travis d’Arnaud should never catch Noah SyndergaardMets 2

Sat, 25 Mar 2017 05:37:25 -0400

PORT ST. LUCIE — Let’s start with the easy part: Pair up Noah Syndergaard with Rene Rivera on Opening Day. On Memorial Day. On Columbus Day. Every day. Just like last year, the Mets’ ace, because his ability to prevent opponents’ running games is hindered by his size, should work regularly with the defensively adept...

PORT ST. LUCIE — The next time he faces major league competition, it will count. Noah Syndergaard completed his Grapefruit League season Friday with six strong innings against the Astros that left him satisfied he’s ready for the April 3 season-opener at Citi Field. “I feel real confident in throwing all my pitches at any...

Travis d’Arnaud can’t do one simple thing, and it’s killing MetsNew York Mets

Sat, 25 Mar 2017 00:50:30 -0400

PORT ST. LUCIE — In his quest to throw out base runners this spring, the Mets’ starting catcher is still Travis d’Ar-Nope. A rough spring for d’Arnaud throwing the ball was underscored Friday, when the Astros were successful in all four of their stolen base attempts against Noah Syndergaard and d’Arnaud in the Mets’ 2-0...

How Mets-Nationals stack up in what may be best rivalry in 2017Bryce 2

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 05:54:34 -0400

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Did baseball’s best current rivalry hold a dress rehearsal Thursday at The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches? No, Mets-Nationals can’t hold a finger to Yankees-Red Sox, Dodgers-Giants or Cardinals-Cubs when it comes to history and regalness. In 2017, though? Mets-Nationals has two critical attributes going for it: 1) It’s close....

Unlikely contender making push for Mets bullpen jobNew York Mets Spring Training

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 04:18:07 -0400

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Paul Sewald could leave the Mets with a difficult choice for the final bullpen spot. As the Mets prepare for the likelihood Jeurys Familia will be suspended following his arrest last offseason on domestic violence charges, the right-handed Sewald is making a claim for that potential opening. Sewald’s primary competition...

Why Mets are set to make Robert Gsellman their No. 5 startergsellman

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 19:15:48 -0400

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Robert Gsellman won the Mets’ confidence late last summer and has done nothing to relinquish it this spring. With a week remaining in the exhibition season, the competition for the fifth spot in the team’s rotation is officially open, but signs point to Gsellman on the brink of getting the...

Zack Wheeler running out of time to prove self to MetsZack Wheeler

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 00:42:43 -0400

PORT ST. LUCIE — Sunny day. Cloudy forecast. What’s next for Zack Wheeler? A Grapefruit League start Monday. And after that, the great unknown for the man whose future has been on hold for two years now. The long-inactive right-hander threw three up-and-down relief innings for the Mets on Wednesday, taking the loss as the...

Curtis Granderson’s blasts may have sealed Mets’ batting orderMiami Marlins v New York Mets

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 21:07:36 -0400

PORT ST. LUCIE — Curtis Granderson couldn’t have cleaned up much better on Wednesday. With the Mets’ starting lineup intact for the first time in nearly three weeks, Granderson was inserted at cleanup and blasted two home runs in his team’s 15-9 loss to the Marlins at First Data Field. And manager Terry Collins later...

Shaky Zack Wheeler further complicates Mets’ rotation battleZack Wheeler

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 19:25:39 -0400

PORT ST. LUCIE — Zack Wheeler still can bring it, but a juiced fastball alone isn’t going to win him a job in the Mets’ starting rotation. On Wednesday, the Mets saw some of the encouraging signs that surfaced last week from Wheeler, including a fastball that sat consistently in the 94-96 mph range. But...

Former Mets, Yankees manager Dallas Green dead at 82DallasGreen.jpg

PORT ST. LUCIE — Dallas Green, whose booming voice and striking appearance made him an unforgettable presence in the baseball world, died Wednesday, the Phillies said. He was 82. No cause of death has been revealed. Green belongs to a special quartet of men who managed both the Yankees and Mets. Yet the honest-to-a-fault Delaware...

Why journeyman lefty reliever is on brink of making Mets’ rosterNew York Mets Spring Training

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 22:56:43 -0400

PORT ST. LUCIE — A slight mechanical adjustment has helped Josh Smoker move to the brink of securing a spot in the Mets bullpen. After working this spring to ensure he remains more closed in his delivery to left-handed hitters, the lefty has posted a 1.74 ERA in 10 appearances in the exhibition season. Most...

Nationals’ worries are vanishing — and Mets’ are growingbr

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 20:02:02 -0400

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Down in Fort Myers, the Red Sox face enough questions to fill a Supreme Court confirmation hearing. A glass-half-full Yankees fan can dream on such schadenfreude. Mets fans, however, should look away from The Ballpark of the Palm Beaches. Oh sure, the Nationals sport a modest 10-10 Grapefruit League record...

PORT ST. LUCIE — It’s crunch time. From manager Terry Collins’ perspective, the real warmup for the Mets’ season will begin Wednesday, when the manager plans to begin using his starting lineup on a regular basis in the Grapefruit League. Jose Reyes is expected back from the World Baseball Classic, where he played for the...

LAKELAND, Fla. — Tim Tebow will look to further his education at Columbia. But don’t think in terms of the Ivy League school. In this case, Columbia (S.C.) refers to the Mets’ Single-A affiliate in the South Atlantic League, where Tebow has been told he will start the season. The former Heisman Trophy winner was...

The challenges of evaluating Matt Harvey’s mediocre springNew York Mets Spring Training

Mon, 20 Mar 2017 18:39:28 -0400

LAKELAND, Fla. — Could Matt Harvey be sandbagging the rest of baseball? Well, let’s backtrack. I don’t think the Mets’ human back page actually tried to dupe the other 29 teams into thinking he was done. Yet, did the soon-to-be 28-year-old’s struggles this spring reflect as much a proactively deliberate approach back from last year’s...

LAKELAND, Fla. — Matt Harvey had a little extra juice when he needed it Monday. After watching his fastball lag to start the Grapefruit League season, the Mets right-hander threw a series of pitches that registered 95, 96 and 95 mph in the third inning, according to the radar gun at Joker Marchant Stadium. This...

PORT ST. LUCIE — First Data Field carried a regular-season vibe on Sunday afternoon, a near-packed house — replete with spring-breaking New York families — investing emotion into the outcome of this Grapefruit League contest between the Mets and the Marlins. So when the Mets mounted rally after rally in the early going, only to...

Sun, 19 Mar 2017 20:55:51 -0400

PORT ST. LUCIE — Jacob deGrom’s nearly spotless spring was sullied as he worked to build up his pitch count in Sunday’s sixth inning against the Marlins. To that point, the Mets right-hander had been the front-runner for the mythical Grapefruit League Cy Young award. But as he chased 75 pitches for the first time...
