Report from Port St. Lucie, 2/22
Some interesting news out of camp today, when the Mets revealed that Ike Davis flew back to New York for additional testing regarding his physical, and Terry Collins admitted that he’s not happy with Ruben Tejada for waiting until the position player deadline to report to camp. Both are developing stories that should see updates later this week. Those links also contain updates on Johan Santana and Jose Reyes’ old uniform number.
What created the biggest stir at camp today, however, was when Daniel Murphy, Lucas Duda and David Wright began spraying balls all over Field 7, the practice field designed with identical dimensions to Citi Field. Though it was just one batting practice session, and though the wind was blowing out, those three and Collins allowed themselves to hope that maybe Citi really will play in their favor this season.
More tomorrow, including an update on Davis and his situation.
