Meet the Mets
The Mets beats the Braves 3-0 behind five innings from Rafael Montero and a Michael Conforto home run.
Jacob deGrom has been lights out so far this spring.
The Mets are also enjoying something you always need to have but never want to use: starting pitching depth.
The Mets’ outfield depth, however, will be tested, since Juan Lagares left Saturday’s game after straining his oblique.
It’s back to the drawing board for Travis d’Arnaud, who spent time throwing out minor league base-stealers after Friday’s disastrous outing.
Around the NL East
The Braves’ general manager threw some cold water on the rumors that Jose Quintana could be moving to Atlanta.
Meanwhile, the Good Phight took some time to reminisce about how good John Kruk was.
Washington also made several roster moves Saturday.
Around the Majors
David Price’s debut could be pushed further back on the calendar.
Baseballs continue to fly off the bat for Greg Bird, who’s been one of the best hitters so far this spring.
We see one swarm every spring training, and this season we were due. See what all the buzz is about.
Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue
We continued our Mets preview, taking a look at every player on the 40-man roster. Up today: potential fifth outfielder Brandon Nimmo, relegated third catcher Kevin Plawecki, and reinvirgorated pitcher Zack Wheeler.
This Date in Mets History
