ESNY has the news from the New York Mets-verse that you need to know, including Tim Tebow’s future and Matt Harvey’s surprising start.
OF Tim Tebow will call South Carolina home at the season’s beginning, as the former Heisman winner will start in the Mets’ Low-A affiliate Columbia Fireflies’ outfield, writes ESNY’s Matthew Solof.
Newsday‘s Marc Carig writes how Matt Harvey began to show signs of his old-self, but ultimately the results from his start against the Detroit Tigers was not what team brass had hoped for.
Righty reliever Fernando Salas finally arrived in Mets camp after visa issues with the United States government. Salas pitched for Mexico in the World Baseball Classic, but hasn’t had much work otherwise.
Salas is rusty. And it shows. Allows a hit, throws a wild pitch. Mets have him as their setup guy. So, his progress is important.

T.J. Rivera has four hits in the World Baseball Classic. Two of them are homers. This one gives Puerto Rico a 3-2 lead over the Netherlands.
