Mets' Zack Wheeler: Will start season in bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (arm) will start the season in the bullpen following the Mets' acquisition of Jason Vargas, the New York Daily News reports.

Wheeler made 17 starts for the Mets last season, his first big-league appearances since 2014. He battled multiple injuries throughout the season and struggled to a 5.21 ERA. A move to the pen might be a good idea for the talented but injury-prone pitcher, though Wheeler could easily be back in the rotation if someone else gets injured.

Mets' Michael Conforto: Returns to hitting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conforto (shoulder) hit off a tee Tuesday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

This marks the first time the young outfielder has been able to swing a bat since undergoing shoulder surgery in September. At this point, Conforto is still eyeing a May 1 return, but the date still appears to be fairly fluid. Things should become clearer as he progresses further in his rehab process.

Mets' Jacob deGrom: Leaving camp for birth of child
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeGrom left Mets camp Tuesday to be with his wife for the impending birth of the couple's second child, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander is expected to rejoin the Mets on Saturday after taking a few days to spend time with family. Given deGrom's importance to the Mets' rotation, it's unlikely that manager Mickey Callaway was planning on using him extensively early in the Grapefruit League schedule, so leaving the team for a brief spell probably won't put the pitcher too far behind the rest of his rotation mates.

Mets' Jeff Glenn: Signs with Mets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Glenn signed a minor-league contract with the Mets, Baseball America reports.

A career Met, Glenn was released by the organization at the conclusion of last season, and this is now the third-straight year he's signed a new contract with the club. Glenn has never seen major-league action and he slashed just .234/.321/.340 in 20 games with Triple-A Las Vegas last season. He figures to serve as organizational depth, but he's only 26 years old, so there could still be a major-league future for him should he perform well.

Mets' Yoenis Cespedes: Improves flexibility in offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cespedes (hamstring) said he has attempted to improve his flexibility in the offseason by doing yoga, increasing his running and reducing his weight-lifting routine, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports."[Cespedes] has had a great offseason -- a lot more running he has done than in the past," Mets manager Mickey Callaway said. "Everybody identified that he needed that and he has gone to yoga classes for flexibility and he wants to play every day."

Lower-body injuries forced Cespedes to miss half of last season, though he was productive as usual when able to take the field, slashing .292/.352/.540 with 17 home runs before being shut down in late August with a right hamstring strain. Cespedes is hopeful that an increased emphasis on flexibility will address the leg problems that plagued him last season and help him withstand the rigors of a 162-game schedule. Callaway seems to believe that Cespedes is up to the task, as the skipper indicated Monday that he isn't mapping out any pre-planned rest days for the outfielder, something that previous manager Terry Collins often chose to implement the past two seasons.
