Drew Smith

Perhaps no one was more excited to get going with the Mets' first Spring Training workout than Luis Rojas. The new Mets manager revealed as much while meeting with the media after New York's return to the field Wednesday morning in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

"Getting here today early, I joked and told the guys earlier, I've been wearing this uniform since like 5:30 in the morning," Rojas said with a laugh. "So it's been a really exciting day for me and that's probably the most fun, just getting here and getting all the guys in one room, being able to talk to them, communicate about what we're going to be doing out there and then going out there and executing it. I mean, I've got to give credit to the coaches. They did such a good job just keeping the stations that we had going on active. From the sides, from the throwing program and to the defensive stations that we had, they were all very energetic and they were all very well coordinated. Time wise, it was a great job by the coaching staff today."

While all position players set to join the pitchers, catchers and others already on the ground at Clover Park, the Mets are already off and running. Rojas recapped the opening day's slate and looked forward to the rest of the week, with the following takeaways from Wednesday's press conference setting the scene.

The Mets had trouble generating any offense against the Marlins in an 8-1 loss on the road on Tuesday afternoon. >> Box score

Five things to know about Tuesday's game...

1) Jacob deGrom got another spring start, and it was a pretty good one for the Mets' ace. The only blip on his line was a two-run homer allowed to Brian Anderson in the bottom of the third inning. Overall, he allowed those two earned runs on six hits while striking out six and walking none over five innings of work.

Mets reliever Drew Smith, who seemed on track to be in the Opening Day bullpen, needs Tommy John surgery, manager Mickey Callaway said Monday.

Smith, who had been sent back to New York to be evaluated by team doctors, is out for the season. 

The 25-year-old Smith had been solid so far in Spring Training, tossing 4.0 scoreless innings while walking three and striking out four.
