Harvey slow and steady progress
Noah Syndergaard is scheduled to pitch on March 5, and Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, Steven Matz and Zack Wheeler will follow him in order.
Manager Terry Collins has David Wright slated to play third base in Grapefruit League games early-to-mid March and he will DH until then. But he's only thrown three times since his June neck surgery, making 20-30 throws from 50-60 feet away from fans and media.
The Mets invited several minor league prospects to big league camp: RHP Chase Bradford, catcher Xorge Carrillo, LHP P.J. Conlon, infielder Phillip Evans, infielder Luis Guillorme, RHP Kevin McGowan, LHP David Roseboom, RHP Paul Sewald, infielder Dominic Smith, outfielder Champ Stuart, outfielder Travis Taijeron, RHP Corey Taylor and RHP Logan Taylor.
