@ Washington Nationals 11, Mets 5 (In Viera, Radio Only)
CF Brandon Nimmo: 1-1. He’s having a very nice spring
2B Wilmer Flores: 0-2, 2 BB. Key facts here: he played second, and walked twice.
Jacob deGrom: 2 IP, 1 H , 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K. Nice
Cory Mazzoni: 1 IP, 5 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 2 BB, 1 K, 2 HR.
Oh dear. Terry Collins, as quoted by Adam Rubin at ESPNNY:
We like his stuff. Today was a bad day. He was flying open. Stuff was flat. This kid has got very good velocity. He didn’t have it today. But he’s come with some high recommendations from the people in the organization that this kid can be an absolute late-in-the-game kind of bullpen guy, because he’s got three quality pitches. Today they just weren’t working.
Not much in the way of prospect pitching in this one, but at the plate Cesar Puello was 1-for-3 and hit a few balls hard.
