Mets manager Terry Collins said that there are two open bullpen spots, as it stands today.
He also said Jim Henderson will get a good look during spring training. Collins hasn't seen him throw yet, but is intrigued by his experience.
Bartolo Colon wanted to come back and brings a lot to the table, from his durability and ability to pitch out of the bullpen once Zack Wheeler returns, Collins said. Collins also said Colon could be a late-inning pitcher.
In terms of having a long man out of the bullpen, Collins mentioned players like Logan Verrett, Rafael Montero and Sean Gilmartin could fill that role.
Yoenis Cespedes will arrive on Sunday and practice on Monday, Collins said.
Collins preached the versability of the Mets bench. He likes the deep roster and felt that their bench helped them win games toward the end of 2015.
Collins said he doesn't know who will bat second this season. David Wright is an option, as is Neil Walker.
