News and Notes from Tuesday

  • Mets claimed former Braves reliever Manny Acosta, who was added to the 40-man roster and is going to be put in AAA. I will have a scouting report on Acosta tonight/tomorrow.
  • Mets waived Pat Misch; no one has claimed him yet, and they are hoping they can option him to Buffalo.
  • Mariners waived "my favorite" Ryan Garko. Let's see if the Mets pick him up to hit lefties as part of a platoon, but I doubt it. 
In regards to today's Mets games.
  • Jose Reyes played in a minor league game, and showed no ill effects running the bases and gave a thumbs up to the camera after he finished his workout. 
    • No one is talking whether he will play on Opening Day or not; but if it's not Opening Day, he should be playing in the majors the 1st week of the season in my opinion.
  • Johan Santana didn't have a great outing in the same minor league game
    • We can't get worked up over spring training stats with Johan; he has earned our trust.
    • I can't wait to watch him work on Monday at Citi Field when it really matters
  • Daniel Murphy appeared to injure his ankle (UPDATE: Knee) on a rundown, and left the game.
    • He walked off the field under his own power, and it doesn't look like a long-term issue
    • He had a couple more hits today, and has really found his stroke as of late. 
  • Alex Cora got hit in the hip with a pitch and left the game
    • Should just be a bruise and no impact on his availability for Opening Day
  • Jason Bay looked poor on a number of outfield chances today
    • He hit a bomb to straight away CF to try to off-set those miscues
  • Sean Green threw 2 good innings, the best he's looked all spring
    • He is trying to make one last ditch effort to make the team
  • Kelvim Escobar has started playing catch again, and it was pain-free
    • He is still at least 6 weeks away without set-backs from contributing to the bullpen
