Mets' Asdrubal Cabrera: Could see at-bats in leadoff spot
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cabrera will get consideration as the Mets' leadoff hitter this season on days when Jose Reyes isn't in the lineup, The New York Post reports.

He primarily batted second for the Mets last season, but in his career Cabrera has hit .286/.321/.410 in 315 at-bats from the top of the order. With Reyes stuck in a super-utility role, the team will need someone else to hit leadoff in their standard starting eight, and if Cabrera can maintain the .336 OBP he posted in 2016, he could prove to be the best man for the job.

Mets' Neil Walker: Could see at-bats in leadoff spot
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Walker (back) will get consideration as the Mets' leadoff hitter this season on days when Jose Reyes isn't in the lineup, The New York Post reports.

He didn't hit any higher than second last season for the Mets, and in his career Walker has only eight at-bats from the leadoff spot, but the Mets don't really have any ideal options for the top of the order in their standard starting eight. With Reyes stuck in a super-utility role, however, the team will need someone else to handle the job, and if Walker (career .339 OBP) sees significant action as the leadoff hitter, he could see a slight uptick in runs scored.

Mets' Curtis Granderson: In mix for leadoff spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Granderson will get consideration as the Mets' leadoff hitter this season on days when Jose Reyes isn't in the lineup, The New York Post reports.

The veteran spent most of his time in 2016, and indeed throughout his career, hitting leadoff, but his .218/.317/.433 line last year in that slot wasn't exactly ideal for the top of the order. Granderson also hit .321/.440/.605 in 81 at-bats as the cleanup hitter, though, and his .854 career OPS while hitting fourth is his highest from any spot in the batting order, so despite manager Terry Collins' comfort with him coming to the plate first, the Mets might be better off keeping Granderson in the heart of the order this season.

Mets' David Wright: Throws again Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Wright played catch Tuesday, just the second time he's thrown a baseball since neck surgery last June, The New York Daily News reports.

The Mets are keeping Wright's throwing sessions out of the public eye for now, and manager Terry Collins' comments afterwards suggested that Wright's efforts are less than impressive at the moment. "We want to make sure when he starts out there throwing in front of everybody that he's ready to let loose," Collins said. Wright will DH during Grapefruit League action to begin the spring, as well as get at-bats during minor league games, and Collins suggested it could be a few weeks before the Mets consider using Wright in the field.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Completes another bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (elbow) threw a 30-pitch bullpen session Wednesday at about 85-to-90 percent effort, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

Wheeler threw a little harder than he did in his previous bullpen session Sunday, a sign that he's continuing to make strides in the recovery process from March 2015 Tommy John surgery. The Mets still seem content to proceed slowly with Wheeler throughout the spring, but the right-hander hasn't been ruled out for Opening Day.
