Deolis Guerra touching 95 mph...

Deolis Guerra is at camp in St. Lucie, where he will open up his Minor League season. Reports out of camp are that Guerra has been touching 95 mph on the gun with his fastball, and could be ready for a breakout year(if last year wasn't). With another very good season this year, he could be primed for a top 25 prospect ranking, can't wait to see what he does.

Juan Lagares turning heads

On the move: Shortstop Juan Lagares, who turns 18 next Sunday, already has turned heads in Mets camp. Tim Teufel, who will manage the Mets' Savannah affiliate in the low Class A South Atlantic League, hears a difference when Lagares, a right-handed hitter, makes contact.

"You stop to watch him," said Tom McCraw, the hitting coach with the Gulf Coast Mets.

This kid could be reallll good, he has been compared to Jose Reyes by the scout who scouted both Reyes and Lagares. Look for Lagares to start the season in Low A.

Carp and Nando have big days!

Mike Carp and Fernando Martinez both went 3 for 3 today with a double and a walk each. Look for them both to start the year off in AA.

Mike Carp (left) continues to make a case to replace Carlos Delgado this season (OK, not really). He did go 2 for 4 with another double, his third in the last 2 games. He raised his spring average to .333 (5 for 15). Carp is ticketted for an assignment in the Eastern League with the Binghamton Mets.
Meanwhile, Lastings Milledge continues to hit into tough luck this spring (while Shawn Green continues to just plain not hit). He rocketted a pair of liners to center field and left field today, both outs.
