Injuries
Hamstring - Questionable for start of season (Updated - 3/27/17)
News
Nimmo (hamstring) has been able to start jogging, but Mets manager Terry Collins suggested Sunday it was a "long shot" for the outfielder to see any further Grapefruit League action this spring, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

A DL stint to begin the season is looking likely for Nimmo, but if he's at least able to ramp up his activity level over the final few days of training camp, it could be a short one. The 24-year-old will slot in as the Mets' fifth outfielder and provide a left-handed bat off the bench once he's healthy.

News
Syndergaard allowed one run on four hits with five strikeouts over six innings in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Astros.

He'll make one more start this spring to increase his pitch count, but otherwise Syndergaard seems more than ready for Opening Day. Manager Terry Collins also announced Friday that Rene Rivera would resume his duties as the righty's personal catcher to begin this season due to Travis d'Arnaud's throwing issues, re-uniting the battery that closed out 2016.

News
D'Arnaud was 0-for-4 in throwing out basestealers Friday with Noah Syndergaard on the mound, even failing to gun down Jake Marisnick on a pitchout, and as a result Rene Rivera will be Syndergaard's personal catcher to begin the season, John Harper of the New York Daily News reports.

The Mets were hoping the addition of catching coach Glenn Sherlock to the staff would help d'Arnaud improve his throwing, but that hasn't been the case this spring as the 28-year-old is 0-for-12 in nailing would-be thieves. Better results at the plate should at least allow d'Arnaud to remain in a starting role, and to his credit he is hitting .325/.413/.550 through 40 spring at-bats, but if his hitting doesn't rebound significantly from last season's .630 OPS, he could once again find himself on the bench behind Rivera more often than not.

News
Wheeler allowed two hits and two walks while striking out three over five shutout innings during Monday's split-squad game against the Marlins.

His timing was impeccable, as Wheeler's strong performance came while Seth Lugo was struggling to keep the ball in the park against the Nats in the Mets' other game Monday. Wheeler hasn't thrown a regular season pitch since 2014, but the 26-year-old seems finally ready to return to the rotation after some setbacks in his recovery from Tommy John surgery in early 2015.

News
Familia is expected to pitch during Tuesday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

Familia is still awaiting word on a possible suspension while the MLB continues to investigate his domestic violence incident in October, but in the meantime, he's been working out in preparation for the season. After recently pitching for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic, Familia is now on tap for his first appearance of Grapefruit League play, and could take the mound again before spring training draws to a close. The Mets have said that they expect a suspension to be handed down to Familia later this week and are optimistic that the reliever's case will receive more leniency than the 30 games Aroldis Chapman received for a domestic violence incident the previous offseason. While Familia is out, Addison Reed is expected to fill in as the team's closer.

Injuries
Shoulder - Questionable for start of season (Updated - 3/28/17)
News
Gilmartin has been battling a left shoulder injury, but he faced live batters Monday, Newsday's Marc Carig reports.

Gilmartin has not pitched since March 8 due to the injury. However, it seems as though he's on the road back. Fellow lefties Josh Smoker and Josh Edgin have performed well this spring, making Gilmartin a likely candidate to begin the season in the minors. The 26-year-old proved to be a solid bullpen presence in 2015 for the Mets, then bounced between the majors and minors last season as long-relief help, allowing 14 runs in 17 MLB innings.

Injuries
Oblique - Questionable for start of season (Updated - 3/28/17)
News
Lagares (oblique) said Tuesday that he feels almost 100 percent healthy, the New York Daily News' Kristie Ackert reports.

He is still waiting for the results of an MRI he had late Monday afternoon, but that has not prevented him from telling teammates that the test showed no serious damage. The hope is that with treatment, Lagares will be ready to return to game action in a week or so. He is the only true center fielder on the roster, but will still likely lose out on a lot of starts to Curtis Granderson as the Mets look to deploy their best offensive lineup.

Elbow - Expected to be out until at least Apr 14 (Updated - 3/27/17)
News
The Mets want Matz (elbow) to throw an 80-pitch bullpen session before having him make a start, Matt Ehalt of the Record reports.

The club said that they'd like to have Matz participate in said bullpen session either Wednesday or Thursday. However, considering he threw both Monday and Tuesday, it seems more likely that the workout will take place Thursday. If Matz is able to successfully complete the upcoming bullpen session, he'd reduce the likelihood of starting the season with a brief DL stint, so owners should monitor his status over the coming days.

T.J. Rivera, #54
Year-to-date Stats

33.333103160
 
News
Rivera went 2-for-3 with a three-run home run in Monday's split-squad game against the Marlins.

The 28-year-old is now hitting .303 with a .606 SLG in 33 at-bats this spring as he looks to win a bench spot with the Mets. The fact that Wilmer Flores can play the same positions and also hits right-handed does make Rivera somewhat superfluous on the 25-man roster, however, so even if he does break camp on the big-league roster, his playing time will be very limited.

News
Montero has made the Mets' Opening Day roster as a reliever, Adam Rubin of ESPN reports.

Montero pitched better than just about anybody at Mets camp this spring, posting a 1.96 ERA over 18.1 innings. He'll likely serve in low-leverage situations to begin the 2017 campaign.

Matt Harvey, #33

News
Harvey allowed two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out four over six innings during Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves.

His fastball was hitting 97 mph, his slider was running away from right-handed hitters, and the overall result was Harvey's best start of the spring. He still doesn't seem all the way back from surgery to correct his thoracic outlet syndrome, but the 28-year-old's made progress in every start and should at least be able to take his regular turn in the rotation when the regular season begins. With Steven Matz (elbow) now looking like he'll need a DL stint, Harvey should make his 2017 debut in the third game of the season, at home April 6 against these same Braves.

Reyes went 3-for-4 with a double, a triple, a run scored and an RBI in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves.

The 33-year-old hadn't done much this spring after hitting .278/.316/.389 in 18 at-bats for the Dominican Republic in the WBC, but Reyes has now picked up five hits in his last two games and seems to be rounding into form just in time for Opening Day. With David Wright (shoulder) out indefinitely, Reyes will be the Mets' starting third baseman and leadoff hitter to begin the season.

News
Gsellman is expected to open the season as the Mets' fourth starter, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

Another scoreless outing last week brought Gsellman's spring ERA and WHIP down to 1.56 and 1.10, respectively, and effectively cemented the right-hander into the Opening Day rotation. With Steven Matz battling an elbow injury, Zack Wheeler and Seth Lugo are the top candidates to serve as the No. 5 starter to begin the year, according to Heyman. Now that he has a job locked up, Gsellman will likely gain some helium in drafts, but there's still a lot to like even at an increased cost.

Seth Lugo, #67

News
Lugo gave up four runs on eight hits, including three home runs, while striking out three in 4.1 innings during Monday's split-squad game against the Nationals.

The bout of gopheritis may have come at the worst possible time for the 27-year-old righty, as Zack Wheeler was busy holding the Marlins scoreless for five innings in the Mets' other game Monday. Lugo is still in the running to fill in for Steven Matz (elbow) as the fifth starter to begin the season, but his best argument for the job at this point may be the fact that Wheeler will be on a strict innings limit in 2017, and the team may want to save his return for later in the season rather than use up some of those innings in April.

News
Robles allowed one hit and struck out one in two shutout innings of relief during Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves.

His spring ERA with the Mets remains at 0.00 through 7.2 innings with a 9:1 K:BB, and Robles also had good numbers with the Dominican Republic team at the WBC (2.45 ERA, 4:0 K:BB in 3.2 innings). With Jeurys Familia expected to miss the first month of the season due to a domestic violence suspension, Robles should take on eighth-inning duties in April and be a strong source of holds all season.

Rene Rivera, #44

News
Rivera is likely to catch all of Noah Syndergaard's starts to begin the season, John Harper of the New York Daily News reports.

While the battery showed good chemistry last season, this decision has more to do with Travis d'Arnaud's inability to throw out basestealers than it does with Rivera's skills. If d'Arnaud's bat can't compensate for his defensive limitations, Rivera could once again see more playing time than expected in 2017, but his .222/.291/.341 line last year paints a grim picture of his fantasy upside.

News
Conforto went 2-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run, his third long ball of the spring, in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves.

The 24-year-old's path to a spot on the big league roster seems to be getting clearer with Brandon Nimmo (hamstring) still not back in action and Juan Lagares (oblique) getting hurt as well Saturday. However, the Mets have said consistently this spring they'd like to see Conforto get regular at-bats, something that wouldn't happen even as the fourth outfielder in the majors. With the team running out of healthy outfielders, though, the sweet-swinging lefty's development may have to wait.
