Meet the Mets

Despite a strong performance by Zack Wheeler, the Mets ended their game in a tie with the Cardinals.

Wheeler was stellar once again as he continues to look like the pitcher from the second half of last season.

Travis d’Arnaud took another step forward and caught his first game behind the plate since undergoing Tommy John.

Tim Peterson had another strong outing coming out of the pen and has a chance to claim one of the final bullpen spots.

J.D. Davis drove in the Mets only run and looks like he could be a solid depth bat especially given the injuries to Todd Frazier and Jed Lowrie.

Fully healthy, Michael Conforto has the potential to be truly special this season.

Robinson Cano believes the Mets could have an emerging superstar in Amed Rosario.

Since his hire this offseason, Allard Baird has helped overhaul the Mets’ analytics department.

The Mets certainly made moves this offseason, but it might not be enough to earn them a postseason spot.

Around the National League East

If the Braves want to repeat as division champs several things will have to break right for them this season.

Phillies’ pitcher Drew Anderson has emerged this spring and could end up forcing his way into the rotation.

The Nationals defeated the Twins 10-4, but outfielder Michael A. Taylor left the game with a leg injury.

Around Major League Baseball

After struggling all spring, the Tigers have shut down Michael Fulmer so he can work on his mechanics.

Free agents Dallas Keuchel and Gio Gonzalez are doing the best they can to stay in shape as they wait to be signed.

Kyle Seager underwent surgery on his hand but unfortunately the recovery time will be a lot longer than originally expected.

The three batter minimum is going to be a major change that impacts how the game is managed.

A couple of Red Sox players opened up about their mental health struggles and they are hoping to inspire others to do the same.
