Here are some nuggets from the Mets’ spring training on Friday:
A Scher Thing
Max Scherzer pitched seven scoreless innings allowing four hits and one walk with eight strikeouts in the Mets’ 2-0 win over the Astros in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Scherzer’s ERA this spring dipped to 0.77.
Tommy Pham suffered an abrasion on his chin while diving to third base, but remained in the game after being examined by the coach. Buck Showalter said the lack of rain on the Treasure Coast has left the playing surfaces hard, and may have contributed to Brandon Nimmo’s sprained knee and ankle sliding into second base the night before.
He caught my attention
Mark Vientos started at third base and made an impressive backhand stop and throw for one out before coming to the plate the next inning and hitting a double off Framber Valdez.
David Peterson and Tylor Megill will combine in a piggyback start against the Cardinals in Port St. Lucie.
