Now Commenting On:

The Mets must guarantee Daisuke Matsuzaka a spot on the Opening Day roster by noon today, otherwise pay him $100,000 to keep him from being able to opt out of his contract (Rubin (ESPN) Mar. 24).

Similarly, Kyle Farnsworth was released Sunday, but is expected to re-sign on a minor-league deal.

Later in the day, Zack Wheeler will start for the Mets as they face Stephen Strasburg and the Nationals on Tuesday at 1:05 p.m. in Viera.

The game will not be broadcast on local TV or radio.

The team begins their regular season in six days, facing the Nationals next Monday.
