Meet the Mets
Matt Harvey started in a minor league spring training game in Port St. Lucie yesterday because of rain that wound up cancelling the Mets' road game against the Nationals. He gave up a bunch of runs but wasn't concerned—as he shouldn't be. To him, it was all about pitch count.
Today, Noah Syndergaard is slated to pitch for the Mets against the Red Sox. David Price had been slated to pitch for Boston, but iffy weather—scattered thunderstorms in this case—have the Sox doing the same thing with Price that the Mets did with Harvey yesterday.
Jim Henderson, who seems like he has a good shot at making the Opening Day bullpen, is healthy and getting his fastball up to speed.
Michael Conforto does the Steve Serby Q&A thing.
Dilson Herrera and his teammates are still playing in the WBC qualifiers and have a final tonight against Panama.
