2/25/2015 | Projecting the Mets' Opening Day roster

If any questions remained as to the makeup of the Mets' Opening Day roster, manager Terry Collins answered them in the early days of spring. With only five players in camp who did not end last season in the organization, Collins never figured to face many difficult decisions. And while upsets do happen, the bulk of New York's roster appears relatively static heading into this week's full-squad workouts.


2/25/2015 | Mets set to begin full-squad workouts

A light day at Mets camp gave players the opportunity to relax, to fish, to play videogames, to shop -- to do anything they desired within the confines of Florida's Treasure Coast. Position players showed up to Tradition Field on Wednesday to take their physicals, while pitchers participated in a light workout. That was it. Everyone was bracing for Thursday's first day of full-squad workouts.


2/25/2015 | Syndergaard feeling more comfortable at Mets camp

A year after reporting to Port St. Lucie as the talk of camp, a wunderkind whose upper-90s fastball and cartoonish weightlifting regimen dwarfed even Matt Harvey or Zack Wheeler's prospect hype, Noah Syndergaard admits to feeling overwhelmed. Now, finally, perhaps that pressure has eased.


2/24/2015 | Collins wants Tejada to treat spring like open competition

Though Mets officials remain committed to Wilmer Flores as their starting shortstop, manager Terry Collins has gone out of his way this spring to promote Ruben Tejada's candidacy for the job. At the least, Collins knows, Tejada will be a backup middle infielder for the Mets. So the manager hopes to see some newfound fire out of Tejada, who is still just 25 years old.


2/24/2015 | Granderson won't let lineup spot affect rebound

Bouncing all around the lineup last season, Curtis Granderson hit .181 with seven homers batting first or second, versus .269 with 13 home runs in a comparable number of at-bats elsewhere. More significant than lineup assignment is production for Granderson, who slogged through two lengthy slumps during his first season in Flushing.


2/24/2015 | Mets instituting limits after latest spring injury

First baseman Lucas Duda, one of several Mets to report nearly two months early to Spring Training, strained his left intercostal muscle while swinging in the batting cage earlier this month. Duda called the injury a "non-issue" and expects to be ready to participate in all activities by the end of this week. But he will not hit for the first few days of full-squad workouts.


2/23/2015 | Cuddyer finds fit with Mets, isn't worried about transition

As Michael Cuddyer played out a losing string with the Rockies last summer, it became only natural for him to look ahead to his pending free agency. Unsure if the Rockies would extend him a qualifying offer, Cuddyer knew his decision would be difficult. He also knew that at age 35, winning was more of a priority than ever.


2/23/2015 | Lagares has chance to earn Mets' leadoff role

The Mets think 25-year-old Juan Lagares has the skill set to bat first in the lineup every day, and he'll be given every opportunity to earn the leadoff role in Spring Training.


2/23/2015 | Citi Field to host Legends of Wrestling event

Bill Goldberg, Bret Hart, Ric Flair and Rob Van Dam are among 30 professional wrestlers scheduled to appear at a Legends of Wrestling event on June 7 at Citi Field, the Mets announced Monday.


2/23/2015 | Gilmartin hopes stellar changeup helps land bullpen role

Former first-round pick Sean Gilmartin has been a career starting pitcher in his first four pro seasons, but he hopes his four-pitch mix -- especially his stellar changeup -- will land him a role in 2015 with the Mets bullpen.


2/23/2015 | SNY tabs Gelbs as Mets' new field reporter

SNY on Monday officially named Gelbs its new field reporter, replacing Kevin Burkhardt. Gelbs has been an SNY reporter since 2013, and he filled in for Burkhardt frequently last season.


2/22/2015 | Wright making adjustments to maintain his health

As other, mostly younger players scurried about on Sunday, clutching plastic plates of chicken, rice, beans and plantains, David Wright stepped out of Tradition Field's clubhouse kitchen carrying a metal bowl filled to the brim with greens. "Looks delicious," Wright said as he searched for a place to sit.


2/22/2015 | Harvey throws first bullpen, feels like he 'never left'

For all intents and purposes, Harvey is now a regular pitcher on a regular program. Sunday's session was the latest evidence of that.


2/22/2015 | Wheeler expecting big things from Mets' rotation

Add Zack Wheeler to the growing list of Mets touting their rotation's potential. Perhaps more than anyone in the starting five, he still has room to grow.


2/21/2015 | Mets' Collins returns to camp in time for first workout

Following a three-day absence to mourn his father's death in Michigan, Mets manager Terry Collins returned to Spring Training Saturday on the first day of mandatory pitcher and catcher workouts.


2/21/2015 | Reigning NL Rookie of the Year deGrom gets camp underway

Jacob deGrom got married on Nov. 8 and was named the National League Rookie of the Year two days later. The Mets pitcher recalled the best week of his life on Saturday at Spring Training.


2/20/2015 | Mayberry's experience against talented lefties could help Mets

John Mayberry Jr., a longtime Phillie and one of the National League East's foremost lefty mashers, may soon face his famous former teammates for the first time.


2/20/2015 | Alderson reprises lofty expectations for 2015 Mets

Last year's proclamation that the Mets expected, hoped or intended to win 90 games caught more traction than GM Sandy Alderson figured. His goal was simply to alter clubhouse culture. A year later, that goal has not changed.


2/20/2015 | Mets shed light on Harvey plan; 200 innings possible

Matt Harvey will operate on a "95 percent" regular schedule this spring as he completes his rehab from Tommy John surgery, according to general manager Sandy Alderson, who spoke for more than 30 minutes Friday on a number of topics. The Mets may hold Harvey back a day or two from certain activities, but no longer than that.


2/18/2015 | Collins leaves Mets camp after father's passing

Mets manager Terry Collins has left camp to return to Midland, Mich., after the death of his father, according to multiple reports out of Port St. Lucie, Fla.


2/18/2015 | Three questions surround Mets' rotation as camp opens

It can seem somewhat rote, particularly for a Mets team remarkably similar to the one that walked off the field tied for second place in the National League East last September. But considering the Mets aspire to play in October this year, not just September, plenty of questions remain.


2/17/2015 | Mets head into camp with roster mostly set

Outside of the hubbub surrounding Matt Harvey, Spring Training on Florida's Treasure Coast should be atypically quiet this year. Few of the position battles that usually dominate Mets camp are issues this year, with the starting lineup and rotation all but set. Even the bench and bullpen appear static heading into camp.


2/16/2015 | Figueroa to take over Mets' SNY studio duties

SNY's Mets coverage team is undergoing one of its more high-profile shakeups in recent years, with former starting pitcher Nelson Figueroa taking over for Bob Ojeda as the network's primary pregame and postgame studio analyst. Ojeda had worked at SNY since 2009.


2/16/2015 | Time is now: Mets ready to spring into contention

Spring Training is officially set to open this week, with pitchers and catchers reporting Thursday, and manager Terry Collins has said this offseason: "I think we've got the pieces. It's time to step up."
