Meet the Mets
Robert Gsellman pitched well in his first outing of the spring due in large part to the return of his sinker. After undergoing physical therapy in the offseason, the righty believes that the sinker will once again become a successful pitch for him.
Rafael Montero is getting yet another chance with the club and looked impressive in his first appearance of 2018, but can he replicate that success once the season begins?
Jeurys Familia also pitched a scoreless inning in his appearance and the closer hopes to return to his dominant form now that he is healthy.
The top starters, aside from Jacob deGrom, will make their debuts this week starting with Noah Syndergaard today.
The first weird injury of the season goes to Tim Tebow who suffered a sprained ankle when he tripped over a sprinkler in the outfield.
Unfortunately, Dominic Smith’s quad tightness could be a little more serious and he will undergo an MRI to determine the extent of the injury.
The injuries are again concerning, but a healthy Yoenis Cespedes reminded everyone just how awesome he can be with one might swing of the bat.
Manager Mickey Callaway went out of his way to chat with some fans this weekend and is already developing a rapport with the fanbase.

The Yankees are not interested in signing free agents Lance Lynn and Alex Cobb.
If Major League Baseball wants to fix the pace of play problem, then they should ask for players’ input instead of trying to fix it themselves.
