Report from Port St. Lucie, 3/24

Though Terry Collins admitted Saturday that Opening Day does not look good for Andres Torres, the center field situation actually grew somewhat clearer thanks to comments from Sandy Alderson. Basically, it comes down to this:

  • If Torres and backup Scott Hairston are both healthy in time for Opening Day, the Mets will fill their final bench spot with either Mike Baxter or Adam Loewen.
  • If one of Torres or Hairston is healthy, the Mets will still proceed with Baxter or Loewen on their bench, plus likely either Jordany Valdespin or Vinny Rottino.
  • If neither Torres or Hairston is healthy, the Mets will take a natural center fielder north: Kirk Nieuwenhuis if healthy, otherwise Matt den Dekker.

One other note from Saturday’s game: Mike Pelfrey tweaked his mechanics and came away pleased with the results in a 6-6 tie. Do with that information what you will.

Report from Port St. Lucie, 3/10

The news is trending poorly for David Wright, who will not appear in a Grapefruit League game until at least next weekend as he continues to recover from tightness in the left side of his ribcage. You can read the full report on Mets.com, along with some notes on Kevin Mulvey, Vinny Rottino and Robert Carson.

In the meantime, by popular demand, I tried to snap a picture of Jason Bay’s revamped stance as he took batting before today’s game. If you take a close look at his feet, you can see the difference in how open his stance has become.
