Meet the Mets

After a short bout with a wonky shoulder, Brandon Nimmo is good to go for Tuesday’s game against Atlanta. He even managed to take a full round of batting practice yesterday.

Jacob deGrom decided that slowly ramping up is for losers as he hit 97 MPH on the gun in his first innning of the spring.

Everyone’s favorite minor leaguer, Tim Tebow, believes that despite his hitless spring, he is miles ahead of where he was last year at this time.

With an amazing catch being missed by inches and a potential extra base hit of his own being robbed by inches, Tim Tebow is learning that baseball is truly a game of inches.

Although it will be tough, Jacob deGrom plans on doing everything he can to match his historic 2018 season.

Mickey Callaway wouldn’t rule out David Peterson making an appearance in the big leagues at some point this season.

Dave Eiland has one goal in mind for the Mets’ rotation this season: a World Series ring.

Travis d’Arnaud isn’t quite ready to get back into the swing of things yet.

For his first catch of the offseason, Jacob deGrom didn’t wait long into October to call upon his father and keep his arm loose.

Around the National League East

Victor Victor Mesa’s Marlins tenure has started on the wrong fin as he left his first start with a hamstring strain.

The injuries weren’t just limited to the Marlins as Koda Glover left the Nationals’ game with elbow tightness in his first appearance of the spring.

Mike Soroka provided an update on his arm troubles saying that his soreness probably stems from overworking himself during exercises before reporting to camp.

With the designated hitter, the banning of shifts, and minumum batters faced rules potentially coming to the National League and beyond, Bryce Harper and the Phillies could benefit from a long-term deal.

Around Major League Baseball

Lebron will be taking his talents to Baltimore for the 2019 season. David Lebron, that is.

This September, Fox will be airing two MLB games in primetime on Thursday nights.

With clubhouse veteran Adam Jones out of the picture, Trey Mancini continued his tradition of buying Popeye’s chicken for the clubhouse after the spring’s first game.

For the first time since his ruptured aneurysm last season, Danny Farquhar took the mound for a simulated game.

In one of the biggest plot twists of the spring, Brett Lawrie is not actually in the best shape of his life.

After a few days of dealing with shoulder discomfort, Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to start throwing again today.

A mild calf strain will hold Khris Davis back for the first few days of spring training.

J.D. Martinez gave his thoughts on the issues in free agency the past few years calling it “embarassing for baseball.”
