Dispatches from Port St. Lucie, 3/24

The countdown to Opening Day is down to six.

catchersgear

What we learned: A lot, actually. Jon Niese felt no pain after his first bullpen session since undergoing an MRI on his left shoulder. Kyle Farnsworth will re-sign with the Mets. Matt Harvey will headquarter his rehab in New York, not Florida. Dillon Gee will pitch Opening Day. And the Mets have hired an assistant hitting coach.

What we wrote:

Around the league:

They said it:

“It’s a big honor obviously for them to trust me with that day and give that to me. I’m very thankful for that opportunity.” –Gee on his Opening Day start

Dispatches from Port St. Lucie, 3/23

There is officially one week to go until Opening Day.

What we learned: Though Jenrry Mejia has outpitched Daisuke Matsuzaka this spring, Mejia’s low innings total last year may preclude him from joining the Opening Day rotation.

What we wrote:

Around the league:

They said it:

“Tim Teufel was probably not happy.” –Daniel Murphy on his between-the-legs throw to first, referring to the Mets’ third-base coach and infield instructor.

What we learned: Jon Niese is still OK. Presumably. His MRI came up clean, though he could still miss some time.

What we wrote:

Around the league:

They said it:

“It was really good news. It was good to hear.”–Manager Terry Collins on Niese’s clean MRI

Dispatches from Port St. Lucie, 3/5

The Mets split up on Wednesday but lost both games, anyway. Here’s a picture of palm trees to distract you:

What we learned: David Wright will play in a Minor League game Thursday, in advance of what will likely be his Grapefruit League debut on Friday. … Terry Collins is strongly considering batting his pitchers eighth this season, according to the New York Post, in an effort to generate more RBI opportunities for Wright.

What we wrote:

Around the league:

“I dedicate the rest of my career to him. Everything I do, I do it for all my family. But I do it for him, mostly. I hope he’s watching from somewhere.” –Mets roster hopeful Anthony Seratelli on his late father, Russell
