Meet the Mets
Jacob deGrom was excellent yesterday, tossing 5 shutout innings and striking out six, while Johnny Monell's 3-run home run in the 8th put the Mets up for good. After the game, the Mets made 7 cuts from spring camp including Dilson Herrera.
Sandy Alderson defended the Mets' handling of Zack Wheeler. With Wheeler done for the year, Matt Harvey is ready to put the Mets' rotation on his shoulders this year. Wheeler's injury stinks and changes the composition of the Mets' rotation but does it have to mean anything? One thing it could mean: a bullpen spot might open up for Rafael Montero.
Jeurys Familia broke out last season. What does he need to do to repeat or even improve on it? Speaking of the bullpen, Vic Black resumed throwing yesterday. Josh Edgin had his surgery yesterday and is targeting Opening Day 2016 for his return.
Dillon Gee is back in the Mets' rotation but conflict appears to be following him around.
What are the expectations for Lucas Duda in 2015?
