News
Mets All-Star second baseman Daniel Murphy, who enters his final year under contract, said Thursday he would be willing to discuss signing a contract extension. However, it doesn't appear the Mets have started contract negotiations.

"As of right now I'm a Met for this year, for sure, love to be here in the future," Murphy said, per NJ.com. "But that is way in the future. I got too much anxiety about today to worry about what happens in November.

"I've always been open to an extension. I've never approached the blessing of playing in the big leagues with thinking I need to maximize every single dollar I can get out of this game. I've made a whole bunch of money already. I think that it's something that we've always been willing to discuss. I think maybe both sides just haven't come and discussed it, from my understanding."

It appears Murphy could be headed toward free agency after the season since a team source told ESPN no in-season contract talks are planned. The source added while it is not 100 percent certainty Murphy won't be with the Mets next season, the expectation is the team will let him test free agency.

The source added the Mets are deep with upper-level middle-infield prospects and the team could have a viable successor.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Wednesday if anything happens to a starting pitcher, Dillon Gee would be the first option to join the rotation over any of the team's pitching prospects, per NJ.com.

"Montero's a name," Collins said. "Gee's a name. Syndergaard's a name. Bunch of guys you gotta take a look at. We've got to get Dillon Gee ready. If somebody goes down, he's the guy. He'd be the next guy. This guy's won 14 games two years in a row in the big leagues. He's going to be the next guy and then after that you just have to see what happens."

News
Mets outfielder Curtis Granderson downplayed the impact the new dimensions at Citi Field will have on his performance in 2015, per ESPN.

"It was a transition because it was a new stadium," Granderson said of his struggles in his first year with the Mets in 2014. "But it wasn't anything different. People come up and said, 'Oh, it must be hard hitting there.' No, you play in all the other ballparks all the time. Your home games, you've only got half of them there. And then you're going to play somewhere else. You don't adjust your game accordingly. If you hit it, it will go. If you don't, it won't. It's the same in any ballpark."

Although, the addition of hitting coach Kevin Long could have a bigger impact on Granderson.

"The biggest thing is he brings a sense of confidence," Granderson said. "One of the things I enjoyed about being with him for four years with the Yankees was he was always your biggest fan. No matter what he ended up talking about in terms of mechanics or approach or different things, once you came off the field, he was the first one saying, 'Hey, you're real close. You're almost there.' As you know in this game, confidence is a big thing."

Although Mets infielder Wilmer Flores is viewed as the favorite to win the starting job at shortstop, he is taking nothing for granted.

"I'm just here like the years before, fighting for a job," he said, per NJ.com. "I got nothing secure so I'm just fighting for it.

"Everybody has their own opinion about every guy and about every player. Just wait until I play, until I play the season. We'll see how it goes. I'm ready to take this job and I'm ready to fight."

News
The Mets are hoping to see even more growth out of center fielder Juan Lagares in 2015. After winning a Gold Glove in 2014, Lagares will be given the chance to earn the leadoff spot in the lineup this spring in the hopes of getting him on base more.

"We certainly think Juan has the potential to get on base more," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "You guys have all seen his ability to put the bat on the ball, even on balls that are not necessarily strikes. He's strong enough when he hits it, to get base hits. Now we're trying to refine him to get him to be a little bit more in control of the strike zone."

Although Wilmer Flores is viewed as the favorite to win the starting job at shortstop for the Mets, Ruben Tejada still feels he can win the job, per NJ.com.

"Yeah, why not," Tejada said. "I have to demonstrate here why we're here and why I want to. Come here the same way every year, stay healthy, the first thing, and work."

Tejada started a team-high 105 games at shortstop in 2014 for the Mets. 

"I'm ready to work and do my job inside and outside and stay focused and positive, do everything in the right way and keep going," Tejada said.

Mets pitcher Matt Harvey told reporters he didn't hold back when he faced batters Friday for the first time since undergoing elbow surgery in October 2013. Hitters were instructed to track the pitches and not swing.

"I was in 'compete mode,'" Harvey said, per Newsday. "I wasn't holding back."

Harvey, who missed the 2014 season due to Tommy John surgery, is scheduled to make his spring debut March 6 against Detroit. It will be his first game action since Aug. 14, 2013.

Elbow - Out until at least mid-April (Updated - 2/24/15)
News
Mets reliever Bobby Parnell faced faced live hitters Thursday for the first time since having Tommy John surgery last April. Hitters did not swing on any of Parnell pitches during the session, according to ESPN.

"It felt good to see some hitters in the box," Parnell said. "It means I'm making the right steps forward. It was a big step."

Although Parnell is expected to start the season on the disabled list, manager Terry Collins did leave the door open for some major-league exhibition games late in spring training.

"He's going to be a piece we're going to have to have. Like I said to him, 'You've got to still take it slow.' Hopefully by the end of spring training he gets into a couple of games."

The Mets are strongly considering veteran starting pitcher Bartolo Colon for the opening day start April 6 at Washington, multiple sources told ESPN. The sources added the Mets have narrowed the choices to Colon and one other pitcher, who was not named.

If Colon, who went 15-13 with a 4.09 ERA in 2014, gets the nod, then he would become the oldest pitcher (41 years, 317 days old) to start on opening day in the majors since Jamie Moyer (43 years, 136 days) and Randy Johnson (42 years, 205 days) in 2006. He also would become the oldest Mets' opening day starter, surpassing Tom Glavine in 2007 (41 years, 7 days). 

Colon has started six times on opening day. Dillon Gee started on opening day for the Mets last season.
