Cool recovery story: Sean Ratliff. After taking a foul ball off his face that fractured bone, required multiple surgeries, caused him to miss the 2011 season and threatened his career, Ratliff, played for the first time in 2012. He's 25 now, so while it's very unlikely he'll ever make a difference in the big leagues, it's just a nice story of?perseverance?that he's back on the field.
DH Robbie Shields: 3-for-4 with two doubles. The Mets third round pick in 2009, Shields is now 24, and had a really a good first week in the FSL in 2012 by going 6-for-13 with three doubles and a triple, two walks and no strikeouts. He missed the second half of 2011 in St. Lucie with back problems and when he did play, he hit .269/.338/.388 in 20 games in the FSL.
