Baseball: World Baseball Classic Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports

Meet the Mets

Kodai Senga was scratched from his start due to tendinitis at the base of his right index finger. He is day-to-day.

The Mets do not expect an update on Jose Quintana until midweek, as he’s out with a stress fracture in one of his ribs. Buck Showalter said the team is still trying to figure out what they’re dealing with.

Brooks Raley has a low grade hamstring strain.

The Mets optioned Jose Butto to Triple-A, as well as reassigning a handful of players to minor league camp.

Showalter also expects Kodai Senga and Brooks Raley to be ready for the start of the regular season.

The Mets have developed plenty of young talent, and now need to figure out how to integrate it with their major league team.
