Report from Port St. Lucie, 3/23
While the Mets were busy playing the Braves up at Disney, David Wright stayed back in Port St. Lucie to participate in another full day of workouts (pictures below). He remains on track to make his Grapefruit League debut sometime next week.
Not so promising was the prognosis for D.J. Carrasco, who is still battling the effects of a twisted right ankle. Asked if he thinks he will be ready for Opening Day, a taped-up Carrasco replied, “it’s not looking that way.” That could be just the opening his teammate, 41-year-old reliever Miguel Batista, needs to find his way onto the roster.
