MLB Injury News:
New York Mets right-handed starting pitcher Shaun Marcum was perfect in his recent extended spring training outing, as the veteran didn't allow a hit or walk over four innings of work yesterday afternoon in Florida, according to Marc Carig of Newsday.
Marcum threw 41 pitches in an extended spring game today in PSL. 4 ip, 0 hits, 0 runs, 0 walks, 5 strikeouts.

Marcum threw 41 pitches, striking out five batters over that span. He's been sidelined to start the season due to nerve irritation in his neck.
The Mets were initially hoping to have Marcum back by now, but the inflammation caused him to be scratched from a simulated game earlier this month. Manager Terry Collins has told reporters that the team wants Marcum to stretch out to 90 pitches before being activated.
New York signed Marcum as a free agent over the winter. In his absence, the Mets have used left-hander Aaron Laffey in the rotation.

While we were worried about his hitting in Spring Training, the last thing we thought we’d have to worry about from Ruben Tejada was his defense.
Well, after an abysmal start defensively, Tejada (six errors thus far) is causing a lot of headaches for a Mets’ team with little margin for error. Tejada has been the poster boy for bad defense by the Mets. In their first 13 games...
Since being promoted to the big leagues on July 26, 2012, Matt Harvey has lived up to, and at times, exceeded expectations. The former first round draft pick has become one of the toughest pitchers to hit in the National League since his debut and his confidence is on par with that of a veteran pitcher – a pitcher such as Tom Seaver, Jerry Koosman and Dwight Gooden, to name a...
