Meet the Mets

David Wright is set to play in his first spring training game tomorrow—on the minor league side of camp. In possibly-related news, Wilmer Flores has playing a lot of third base thus far in spring training.

Kevin Plawecki hit a home run yesterday, but the Mets still aren't sure if they'll include him on the Opening Day roster. The Mets lost that spring training game, and relief pitcher Stolmy Pimentel was ejected from it.

With Asdrubal Cabrera sidelined and potentially headed for the disabled list to start the season, infielder Matt Reynolds has a shot to make the Mets' Opening Day roster.

Yesterday, Erik Goeddel pitched his first bullpen since he was sidelined by a lat injury early in spring training.

Which of the Mets young pitchers will have the best career?

Michael Conforto talks about his approach to his second major league season after his very successful first season.

Around the National League East

The Marlins would be interested in signing Tim Lincecum only if he were to pitch out of the bullpen.

Shawn Kelley might be the key to the Nationals' overhauled bullpen.

Manny Banuelos made his first start of the spring for the Braves, and the results were a mixed bag.

Around Major League Baseball

The Times profiles A's reliever Sean Doolittle and his willingness to publicly support causes that most athletes do not.

Ken Rosenthal ponders just how much Andrelton Simmons can help the Angels and whether or not Ryan Zimmerman will be healthy when the season begins.
