Report from Port St. Lucie, 2/29

No sooner had I begun working on a story about prospect Reese Havens and his battle to swat away the injury bug, than Havens began skipping workouts with back stiffness. So good when healthy, Havens has been utterly unable to stay on the field since the Mets drafted him in the first round in 2008. I talked to him, his teammates and his personal trainer to try to figure out the answer.

Other than that, camp has been quiet. Last year’s top pick, Brandon Nimmo, showed up and spoke about what he needs to do to advance quickly through the system. And R.A. Dickey threw a session of live batting practice, making several Mets hitters look foolish. Here’s Dickey discussing his session with catcher Josh Thole:
