Meet the Mets

Yoenis Cespedes is walking again and hoping to be back with the Mets this season.

Ricky Bones has been tapped at the new pitching coach for the St. Lucie Mets.

Anthony DiComo says Rajai Davis’ speed on the basepaths and versatility in the outfield is something the Mets have lacked in recent years and could be a big asset.

For what it’s worth, Wilson Ramos had a similar offer on the table from the Angels and chose to sign with the Mets instead.

Tim Tebow will be moving up to AAA to start the 2019 season after his decent showing in Binghamton last year.

John Harper says Jacob deGrom’s innings limit is a very different situation than the one with Matt Harvey.

Around the National League East

The Phillies don’t seem to be in any rush to sign Bryce Harper or Manny Machado as they head into spring training.

The Marlins are apparently done making moves for the offseason.

As the New York Times points out, the Nationals were the only team really willing to spend big this offseason.

Around Major League Baseball

The Yankees and Luis Severino have agreed to a contract extension.

Jeff Passan took a deep dive into the current labor turmoil in MLB.

Drew Storen signed a minor league deal with the Royals.

Corey Seager is looking to put last season behind him.

Yesterday at Amazin’ Avenue
