Mets push back workouts due to rain

Mets push back workouts due to rain


PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Turn off those alarm clocks. Due to forecasts of continued rain in the area, the Mets have pushed Friday's workout back to noon ET. Manager Terry Collins hopes the change will allow his team to avoid a replay of Thursday's sloppy conditions, which robbed pitchers and catchers of a regular workout.

"We didn't get all the conditioning in we wanted," Collins said. "We've got to get the throwing in, because starting next Monday those guys have got to be ready to start throwing batting practice and get ready for games. We got the work done we wanted, but we've got some other things we've got to get done too."

Friday's forecast calls for morning showers to taper off into the afternoon. The Mets typically begin their workouts at 10 a.m.

All workouts at the Tradition Field complex are open to the public.
