In nine days I will be heading to the Newark Airport to commence a three day trip to Florida for Spring Training. And as we rapidly approach that time, I wanted to give you, the viewer, an understanding of Mets Plus’ coverage that we will have during the trip.

Saturday: Regularly Scheduled episode of Subway Booth. On our third episode we will preview the trip, and highlight what I’m looking forward to see.

Sunday: Special Edition of Subway Booth, focusing primarily on the New York Mets. 

Monday: Episode of Subway Booth TV, where we take an inside look at all things Spring Training. 

Tuesday: Subway Booth TV recaps the exciting weekend with extra never before seen clips and features. 

Additionally, there will be daily coverage of news, reports and insights from camp here on MetsPlus.com, where you can find the link to the shows when they are released.

 

Asdrubal Cabrera’s Opening Day Status is in Limbo

One of the key additions to the Mets this season was the signing of credible shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera, however, he is the victim of the first injury of the Spring. According to the New York Times, will visit with the Mets’ medical staff and get an injection of platelet-rich plasma to speed healing, General Manager Sandy Alderson said. Cabrera, who agreed to a two-year, $18.75 million contract in the off-season, said he might get a second magnetic resonance imaging test.

Cabrera got injured in yesterday’s Cardinals vs Mets exhibition game, as he was diagnosed with a strained patellar tendon in his left knee after running the bases. He is expected to “remain idle” for two weeks and is questionable for Opening Day.
