Both Seo and Wigginton are back, recognizing the value that starting early brought to their 2003 campaigns. Seo joins many of the top young arms in the Mets organization, some of whom have been here every day since mini camp including Bob Keppel, Aaron Heilman, Grant Roberts, Tyler Yates, and Jeremy Griffiths. Scott Strickland is also here working out.
Wigginton leads an impressive array of some of the Mets top system bats. David Wright, Justin Huber, Mike Jacobs, Bobby Malek and Ian Bladergroen were all in the cage taking cuts and spraying line drives. All of the players currently in camp are in terrific shape. Everyone seems to have been extremely motivated during the offseason to stick to a effective workout regimen.
The big story is, of course, new shortstop Kazuo Matsui.
Matsui took grounders this morning with David Wright giving onlookers a preview of the left side of the Mets future infield. Matsui covered huge amounts of territory effortlessly, and showcased his soft hands and quick feet. The new kid can pick it.
