Meet the Mets
Steven Matz pitched two solid innings and thinks his new offseason routine has helped him come into camp feeling strong. When Wilson Ramos first signed with the team, to him Matz reminded him a bit of Blake Snell.
Amed Rosario had a big day at the plate and the results could be stemming from the return of a leg kick in his batting stance.
J.D. Davis also had a good day against the Marlins and he is hoping he can show what he can do with injuries opening an opportunity for him.
Brandon Nimmo was not in camp after he made himself an undercooked chicken dinner and fell ill.
Pete Alonso did not see action against Miami but so far he has been impressing with his tireless work ethic.
Travis d’Arnaud is close to returning and is looking forward to contributing in whatever role the Mets give him.
Zack Wheeler is open to signing an extension but he will not be giving the Mets a break if they want to keep him.
Michael Conforto had an up and down season last year but he believes he learned from his struggles (paywall alert).
Rule 5 pick Kyle Dowdy has been impressive in camp so far with a significant increase in velocity.
T.J. Rivera is still experiencing some discomfort in his elbow as he tries to make his way back from Tommy John surgery.
