Injured Players “Frustrated” Early On
Over at the Star Ledger, Andy McCullough has updates on a few of the injury plagued Mets.
He kicks things of with the tidbit that Lucas Duda, who was injured his back working out, is “frustrated” with his swing right now. Duda is expected to take part in the Mets game versus Washington today.
McCullough also mentions that Andres Torres (glute) is expected to play today as well.
David Wright is still day-to-day and manager Terry Collins hopes he can take “light swings” in the cage this weekend.
Probably the biggest news of all the updates is McCullough’s update on Scott Hairston, who McCullough reports:
Four days after he received a trio of cortisone shots on his strained left oblique, reserve outfielder Scott Hairston remained frustrated with his lack of progress.
His side still feels tight, and he has yet to resume any activity that put stress on the area. Hairston hopes to return to action by the final two weeks of the Grapefruit League.
It feels like Hairston will not be ready to go at least early on in the season if you ask me. Even if he recovers before the end of spring training he might not have enough time to get the necessary amount of reps in and will likely open the year on the disabled list. This gives Adam Loewen an even bigger incentive to continue his early success in camp with an opening on the big league club that has his name written on it.
Loewen is 4-for-11 with a homerun, walk, and 4 strikeouts thus far.
