Duda, Tejada, Flores attending fitness camp

NEW YORK -- Lucas Duda and Ruben Tejada are among seven Mets attending a fitness camp this month in Michigan, general manager Sandy Alderson said Tuesday, allowing the organization to monitor their offseason workout regimens.

Duda and Tejada have been working out alongside Wilmer Flores, 2013 first-round Draft pick Dominic Smith and three other Mets farmhands, all under the instruction of strength and conditioning consultant Mike Barwis. The camp, Alderson said, was voluntary, focusing on exercise and nutrition.

"We saw this as a great opportunity to get certain people in a concentrated program, with oversight from somebody who works directly for us," Alderson said. "Each of the players is there for a different reason. There's nothing punitive about it. It's really an opportunity. And we've heard back from a number of them that they're having a terrific time. In fact, [Mets COO] Jeff [Wilpon] was there one weekend and hosted them at a football game. To a man, they're excited about what's going on."

Alderson added that several of the players plan to return to the camp for a follow-up session in January.
