News
Mets left-handed hitters Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Matt den Dekker will be battling for one roster spot this spring, MLB.com reports.

While Nieuwenhuis is out of options, manager Terry Collins indicated that den Dekker has responded to the team's request that he reduce his strikeouts when sent to Triple-A last season.

"We'll just see how it translates this spring into what kind of an offensive player he can be," Collins said of den Dekker. "We know he's got the defensive skills."

Collins said that whichever outfielder shows the most promise will make the initial 25-man roster.

"He plays the game right. He's fearless," Collins said of Nieuwenhuis. "But right now, we've got to get some offense from one of those two guys. Which one of those two guys is going to be able to come off the bench as a pinch-hitter? The best closers in our division are all right-handed, so the left-handed hitter off that bench is going to be a big piece."

Oblique - Out until at least early March (Updated - 2/24/15)
News
Mets first baseman Lucas Duda may be able to take some swings this week after being held out of batting practice for the first week of camp with an oblique injury, reports MLB.com.

Duda hasn't been able to pick up a bat since suffering the injury in mid-February.

"I told him to be patient," manager Terry Collins said on Sunday. "Hopefully by this particular time next week, maybe he's taking BP."

News
When asked about former Mets teammate Ruben Tejada, Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes shook his head and said "something is wrong," per Newsday.

Reyes revealed that during his final season with the Mets he tried to pass the torch to Tejada to become his replacement. Reyes landed in Miami in the offseason, and Tejada was destined to be his permanent replacement. Now entering spring training, Wilmer Flores is viewed as the favorite to win the starting job at shortstop for the Mets.

"Every time I talk to him I try to give him some advice," Reyes said. "What can I do? I try to push him to do stuff. I don't know if he gets it or not...He had the opportunity to be the everyday shortstop for a long time there in New York. You have to work, man. When you're younger, you think you have everything there for you. But if you do something wrong, it's going to go away. Quick.

"When I was there, I always give a lot of advice to him. We were always together. My last year there, every time I talk to him: 'This is going to be your position for a long time. Don't let it go away.' See what happened now? It's 2015 and he doesn't have a position to play. When they talk about who is going to play every day, they don't talk about Tejada. They talk about Flores."

News
Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen admitted Monday starting pitcher Matt Harvey could have returned from Tommy John surgery last season, per NJ.com. But the team kept him out all year because there was no point in activating him off the disabled list late in the year.

"I thought that he could have even pitched at the end of last year and I think that Matt thought he was ready," Warthen said. "I think that we made the right decision. It would have done us no good but he was ready to pitch then."

Harvey, who had Tommy John surgery in Oct. 2013, will make his spring debut Friday against the Tigers. He is slated to throw 35-40 pitches.

"That's the best possible time to a little bit longer," Warthen said of a 17 1/2-month timeframe for a return from Tommy John surgery. "And that has to draw into it as well because the guys that have waited for 17 and a half months have been able to go 200 innings and not been hurt the next year and go 200 the next year and the next year and the next year. So that was part of our thinking. And also, we weren't going anywhere. We weren't going to win anything. Don't take a chance."

News
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.
