Shortly after the Mets' 4-1 win over the Cardinals, general manager Brodie Van Wagenen spoke with the media to give updates on Jed Lowrie, J.D. Davis, and Matt Adams.
Lowrie had just eight plate appearances last year, and came into this season's spring training with a full leg brace.
Van Wagenen announced that there is still no timetable for Lowrie to play, but signs are pointing in the right direction.
"Jed, at this point, continues to be fully unrestricted with all baseball activities," said Van Wagenen. "He's effectively doing all the activities you would expect someone from playing a game while wearing the big brace."
The general manager added that it is a "continued work in progress to try to find a potential transition brace," or update the one he is currently wearing.
As for Davis, Van Wagenen said he was a full participant in batting practice and went through his "normal baseball activites." He added the Mets will "increase his baseball work" and aim to get him into games soon. He said "I feel like I'm ready enough to be ready for Opening Day and everything" before hitting on Wednesday.
Davis suffered a jammed shoulder when diving for a grounder during a spring game. MRI results revealed that Davis had not just inflammation but also an old labrum injury that healed itself. Luckily, it wasn't something that was re-aggravated.
Adams took tests in New York, and all came back clean. Van Wagenen said he will be back in Port St. Lucie on Thursday and resume baseball activities this week.
