Bay and Olson Are Doing Fine
According to several reports from the Mets clubhouse at Digital Domain, both Garrett Olson (hand) and Jason Bay (forearm) are doing fine this morning.
Olson who was struck in the hand by a batted ball yesterday said he will throw a bullpen today, and Bay who was hit on the forearm by a pitch said his it was just a little sore, but fine.
By the way, Andres Torres hopes to get cleared for running today.
Original Post 3/25
Mets left-hander Garrett Olson was struck by a batted ball on his pitching hand during a Minor League game on Sunday. He suffered a contusion on the palm of his hand and was taken to a local hospital for precautionary X-rays, which were negative.
Olson was a strong contender to make the Mets as a reliever, and it’s not yet clear if this will pose any setback.
He has allowed one run on three hits in 5 2/3 innings, striking out three and walking one in seven spring appearances.
Here is a Twitter-cap of the rest of today’s Mets news and notes.
Adam Rubin tweets: Pedro Beato looks like he’s opening the season on the major league DL, not optioned to Triple-A. Shoulder still barking.
David Lennon tweets: Wright described himself as “50-50″ to play tomorrow in Jupiter. As for his progress, says he’s “cautiously optimistic. It’s a process.”
Anthony DiComo tweets: Mets like Adam Loewen’s power, but tough to envision him making team right now. Hasn’t gotten a hit in 8 games and looks shaky at times in OF.
New York Mets tweet: Dillon Gee tossed 6.0 shutout frames with four strikeouts in a Triple-A game today in Port St. Lucie.
Andy Martino tweets: Yes, it was a Mets official who said it, but still predicted den Dekker would win multiple Gold Gloves in CF, hit for power in big leagues.
Adam Rubin tweets: Terry Collins wasn’t committal, but agreed Wright may be in Grapefruit League game Monday. TC added that Torres felt “a lot better today.”
Anthony DiComo tweets: Not a good day for Jason Bay, who took a Stephen Strasburg fastball off his forearm — ouch — but should be okay.
Andy McCollough tweets: Terry Collins said Andres Torres’ calf strain has improved, and Torres could begin running in the coming days.
David Lennon tweets: Hairston having a healthy-looking BP session right now. With current CF mess, that’s a positive development. Rreported no problem with oblique, expects to take more BP tomorrow.
