Roster hopeful Conforto announces presence early

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 16:52:29 EDT

There are but a handful of roles up for grabs at Mets camp this spring. One rotation job. Two bullpen gigs, at most. And one outfield spot that may or may not be Michael Conforto's to claim. Capable -- maybe -- of forcing his way onto the Opening Day roster with a strong spring, Conforto began immediately with a home run and an opposite-field single Friday in the Mets' 3-2 win over the Red Sox in their Grapefruit League debut.

Staring down Andrew Benintendi, Hanley Ramirez and Jackie Bradley Jr. in the fourth inning of the Mets' 3-2 win over the Red Sox on Friday, Marcos Molina had a unique opportunity -- not only to prove he could best some of the game's top hitters, but also that he is all the way back from a Tommy John surgery that robbed him of nearly two full developmental seasons.

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 13:32:20 EDT

Gorzelanny hoping to find niche in Mets' 'pen

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 17:38:50 EDT

It was midway through the 2015 season when Tom Gorzelanny's ERA first spiked over 7.00, scoreboards across the Major Leagues blaring out that truth. Roughly a month shy of his 33rd birthday, Gorzelanny was considering his baseball mortality when then-Tigers pitching coach Jeff Jones suggested a change. Rather than continue using a standard delivery, the left-handed Gorzelanny should try throwing sidearm in the middle of the season.

Walker would welcome long-term extension

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 17:31:35 EDT
