Meet the Mets

The Mets lost 8-1 to the Marlins in Grapefruit League action on Tuesday.

The team also announced another round of spring training cuts yesterday morning. Tim Tebow was the most notable name from the group optioned to the minors.

Though he was sent down, Tebow is not deterred by this move. Kevin Kernan writes that the Mets and scouts have noticed his improvement this spring.

The Mets last workout of the spring will come on March 26th from the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, New York.

Jacob deGrom remains optimistic that he and the Mets will work out a contract extension before Opening Day.

Prospect Andres Gimenez will start the season with Double-A Binghamton.

Jed Lowrie resumed baseball activities today and hopes to be healthy enough for Opening Day.

Around the National League East

The Good Phight writes that someone gave Bryce Harper the book on Philadelphia.

The Nationals roster is good but not great. Adding Craig Kimbrel would help take them to the next level.

The Braves have a battle for their fifth starter position.
