Mets' T.J. Rivera: Slated to play first during spring games
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Rivera is expected to get reps at first base as he works to make the team's 25-man roster, Matt Ehalt of the Record reports.

If Rivera makes the Opening Day roster, it would be unlikely that he'd be used as a regular starter for the Mets. Rather, he'd likely serve as a utility man. Rivera has repeatedly proven that he can hit for average and add occasional power, but showing he can hold his own at first base would surely make him more valuable to the big club.

Mets' Chris Flexen: Out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Flexen (knee) has been scratched from the game Sunday with a sore knee, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Although it is still unclear, it doesn't seem too serious, and he'll likely push his appearance back to later in the week as he rests his knee. Regardless, he'll probably serve as organizational depth in 2017.

Mets' Sean Gilmartin: Tosses two innings in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilmartin got the start in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals, allowing one run on one hit over two innings while striking out one.

The run came on a monster blast off the bat of Bryce Harper, but better pitchers than Gilmartin have served up homers to the Nats' phenom. The 26-year-old is one of a number of lefties competing for a spot in the Mets' bullpen this spring, but his ability to work in long relief and make spot starts could give Gilmartin an edge in the battle.

Mets' David Wright: Gets start at DH on Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright hit fourth as the DH in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Nationals, going 0-for-2.

He didn't look too rusty at the plate, flying out to center in his first at-bat before stinging a line drive into the third baseman's glove in his final trip. Wright is still a couple of weeks away from throwing in a game situation as he continues his recovery from neck surgery, but if all goes well on that front, he seems on track to suit up as the Mets' Opening Day third baseman.

Mets' Lucas Duda: Expects to return in couple of days
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Duda downplayed the severity of the back issue that caused him to receive cortisone shots in his hips Friday and has kept him off the field since Wednesday, The New York Daily News reports. "I feel great. Just a spasm in my back, I guess," Duda said Sunday morning. "We'll take a few days now, instead of taking two weeks down the road. Just being cautious. In a couple days, I should be ready to go."

The slugger's optimism is nice to hear, but until Duda's swinging a bat again, fantasy players in early drafts will need to be cautious in adding him to their rosters after back trouble limited him to just seven home runs in 47 games in 2016. There's certainly upside here, given the 57 total homers he blasted the two seasons prior -- just make sure the risk is properly priced in before you take the plunge.
