Reyes Getting Better

A day that was riddled with another minor injury, some poor pitching performances, a rain delay, and a power outage, was still a happy one in Mets-opotamia as Jose Reyes was on the minor league side of camp running, doing drills and generally looking like a guy who is going to be ready for opening day.

A day that was riddled with another minor injury, some poor pitching performances, a rain delay, and a power outage, was still a happy one in Mets-opotamia as Jose Reyes was on the minor league side of camp running, doing drills and generally looking like a guy who is going to be ready for opening day.

Reyes walked without a limp, reported that he's been doing some light running though not hitting yet, and then walked out to one of the unused fields and went through some running and agility drills with Mets' trainers, and showed no ill effects of the grade 1 sprain he suffered last week.

While a power transformer caused a one hour delay at the start of the Mets game versus the Dodgers last night, it was rain that interrupted the AAA and AA games played on the back fields during the day. The parallels extended to the pitching woes, too, as Bob Keppel, Jason Roach, Randy Keisler, and Royce Ring all struggled, though Keisler and Ring at least had the excuse of having their routine interrupted by the rain. The Mets all seem to be hitting the dead arm line simultaneously as everyone's velocity seems to be down a bit, Ring notably topping out at 85-87 yesterday.

The offense, however, was thriving on the minor league side. Prentice Redman had 2 homeruns and Victor Diaz, again playing RF, had a homerun and a double in the AAA game. David Wright delivered a long ball in the AA game, while Chase Lambin and Justin Huber each had hits and a walk in three appearances. Marvin Seale subbed again for injured Bobby Malek who is still hobbling a little on his rolled-ankle. Angel Pagan ripped a triple to dead center and came home on a throwing error for an error-marred inside the park job. Hube DH'd but reported he was close to being back to catching pretty soon.

Corey Ragsdale was taken to the clubhouse after a collision on a pop up as he rounded second into the shortstop. He appeared a little dazed and was removed as a precaution.

Matt Peterson was the exception, pitching well other than allowing a prodigious solo blast that hit off the CF screen 410 feet away from home plate about 20 feet up the screen. Peterson was otherwise typically dominant, finding the low 90s on the gun and dropping his nasty hook in for strikes consistently.
