Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News, spoke with Asdrubal Cabrera and Terry Collins on Thursday. The Mets’ shortstop believes that he will be good to go for Opening Day.

“I think so, yes,” Cabrera said of being available on Opening Day. “The knee feels good.”

However, Cabrera does have some work to do in order to be ready for the start of the season. He has started to make his way back to the diamond by beginning to ride a stationary bike.

“He’s riding the bike and hopefully he starts to do some more stuff, maybe play catch and go in the cages and start tracking pitches,” Terry Collins said. “And he kind of gets back to the speed stuff.”

This is good news for the team that does have question marks on the left side of the infield. It will be key to have him remain healthy for most of the season. Look for Wilmer Flores or Matt Reynolds to step in for Cabrera whenever he is not available to play.
