Recap: Mets Camp on Thursday at Tradition Field

The cool and windy weather didn’t stop today’s first full squad workout for the Mets at Tradition Field. Here is a quick rundown of the morning’s events:

  • Francisco Rodriguez has “Pink Eye”, and is currently not with the team.
  • The Mets had an early morning meeting prior to their first workout, and finally took the field as a team a little after 9:30 am.
  • Johan Santana threw a bullpen session today with pitching coach Dan Warthen in the batters box simulating situations for him. He threw about 45 pitches, said he felt good, and is set for his first start between March 9 and March 12.
  • Oliver Perez, Mike Pelfrey, Fernando Nieve and John Maine all threw live batting practice today.
