Meet the Mets
It is the first day of March and that means the baseball season begins this month!
The Mets need to figure out the state of their rotation and Matt Harvey took a step forward with a solid first appearance of the spring.
Harvey still has a long way to go but this appearance was a promising first step.
Zack Wheeler might become the odd man out of the rotation and his first relief outing of the spring could have gone better.
It has been a long road for both Harvey and Wheeler since Wheeler’s debut in 2013, but perhaps the two can reclaim some of the promise they showed on “Super Tuesday.”
Jacob deGrom resumed throwing and he still hopes to be ready for Opening Day.
There was no update on Anthony Swarzak’s status but he still doesn’t believe his calf will be an issue.
All of these injuries so early in spring training is certainly disheartening but perhaps it is a good thing.
It is still early but some prospects have fared better than others so far in camp.

Hopefully Jacob deGrom can remain dominant this season.
Brian Salvatore hopes David Wright can return to action this year.
This Date in Mets History
On this date in 1976, tensions started to build between Tom Seaver and the Mets. Seaver informed the Mets he would not report to spring training unless he received a new contract.
Happy Birthday Michael Conforto!
