Meet the Mets

Zack Wheeler told Newsday that he's not on a specific timetable, and plans on being back in late June or early July. Wheeler has been working out in Port St. Lucie, and said that he's being careful not to rush his return.

The Mets may still have some interest in Yoenis Cespedes. One report says the Mets would be interested if Cespedes' market continues to drop, and they could get him for on a one-year deal.

Terry Collins will be the subject of "A Baseball Life" tonight at 9pm. During the interview, he said that he was at peace with his decision send Matt Harvey back out to the mound.

Dan Szymborski's ZiPS projections for the Mets are out. He is pretty bullish on the Mets pitching staff, and thinks the Mets' position players are solid.

The Mets have worked out cricket star Kieran Powell. Powell, a native of Nevis, is being auditioned by several teams.

In case you were wondering how badly Mets fans disliked the Wilpons, the Mets were in the lowest tier in Fangraphs' ownership poll.

Around the Majors

Joe Girardi said yesterday that he would be using Aroldis Chapman as his closer. The Yankees bullpen will be a major threat with Dellin Betances, Aroldis Chapman, and Andrew Miller.

The Reds have signed Cuban shortstop Alfredo Rodriguez to a $6 million deal. The 21-year-old is among the top Cuban defenders, if not the best in the Cuban National League.

The Cardinals have inked Korean reliever Seung-Hwan Oh to a deal. Oh will be given an opportunity for a late-inning role behind Trevor Rosenthal.

Craig Calcaterra noted that a major trial involving baseball broadcasts is about to get underway, that many of us may not have heard of.

Yesterday at AA

Matt Varvaro reviewed Davey Johnson's Hall of Fame case.

Matt also posted his weekly Mind Boggler, and this week it's the best players from the 1960's.

Jordan Rabinowitz told us about the Mets' spring training schedule.
