Mets' Gavin Cecchini: Hopes for more power after adding muscle over offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cecchini added 15 pounds of muscle over the offseason with the hope of introducing more power into his game, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

After hitting just six homers at Triple-A Las Vegas last season, Cecchini got a personal nutritionist and attempted to eat healthier over the season. According to reports, the young infielder's weight dropped as low as 180 pounds last season due to what he termed as "lack of appetite," but it seems like he has an entirely new approach to eating that could help him maintain his power throughout the entire course of the season. Offseason adjustments aside, it seems like he's on the outside of the active roster looking in to start the season, especially after the Mets opted to retain Jose Reyes and signed Todd Frazier. That said, Cecchini has two full seasons of Triple-A action under his belt, so he'll likely be in the majors at some point in 2018 even if he doesn't crack the Opening Day roster.

Mets' Adrian Gonzalez: To DH on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gonzalez (back) will be the designated hitter for the Mets' Grapefruit League opener against Atlanta on Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Gonzalez only appeared in 71 games with the Dodgers in 2017 due to chronic back pain, so it's a good sign that he's been immediately thrust into action with no report of any limitations this spring. He looks to have the inside track for the starting first base job over Dominic Smith -- who will be starting at the position during Friday's game -- though Gonzalez's health will be a vital aspect of the competition. Prior to last year, Gonzalez has appeared in over 156 games every season since 2006.

Mets' Yoenis Cespedes: To play later in week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cespedes (hamstring) could appear in a Grapefruit League game as soon as Sunday against Miami, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.

It appears as though Cespedes is around 100 percent heading into this spring after missing basically half of last season with lower-body injuries. That said, the club isn't going to make him play in any more unnecessary spring games than he has to, though he should be out on the field by early next week at the latest.

Mets' Zack Wheeler: Gets nod for Grapefruit League opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wheeler (arm) will start the Mets' Grapefruit League opener Friday against the Braves, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

One of eight starters competing for a spot in the rotation this spring, Wheeler is a more realistic candidate for the No. 5 gig than most of his fellow challengers, but he's still viewed as the underdog to frontrunner Steven Matz (elbow) for those duties. Given the fragile health that Matz, as well as Noah Syndergaard and Matt Harvey, have shown in the past, the Mets are still eager to stretch Wheeler out this spring as rotation insurance, though opening the season in long relief remains the most likely outcome at the moment. A bullpen assignment may ultimately prove to be the best way for the Mets to optimize Wheeler, who harbors his own injury concerns after missing the 2015 and 2016 seasons while recovering from Tommy John surgery and making only 17 starts in 2017 due to a stress fracture in his right arm. Wheeler's availability this early in the spring at least suggests the Mets aren't worried about a setback in his recovery from the arm injury heading into Opening Day.

Mets' Steven Matz: Tosses another BP on Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matz (elbow) threw his second live batting practice session of spring camp Thursday, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports.

Matz continues to work his way back from an August procedure to reposition a compressed nerve in his left elbow. He appears to be right in line with the other pitchers at this point in spring training, as he's now tossed a pair of live batting practice sessions in addition to a couple bullpens at the start of camp. Expect to see him on the mound in a Grapefruit League outing in the near future.
