    Alderson: `Some of our players aren’t defensive geniuses'

    New York Mets president Sandy Alderson says he is emphasizing offense over defense but Kevin Pillar and Albert Almora Jr. were brought in to help with their gloves. “While some of our players aren’t defensive geniuses, we think that the overall blend that we have is pretty good," Alderson said during an interview on the ESPN telecast of Thursday’s 8-4 win over Washington in Port St. Lucie, Florida. Washington stole three bases off new Mets catcher Brian McCann, two by Víctor Robles.

Lugo spoke Thursday for the first time since the operation with Mets medical director Dr. David Altchek. New York said Lugo needs about six weeks of recuperation following the surgery before he can throw.

    Mariano Duncan bench coach for Ed Blankmeyer with Cyclones

    Former big leaguer Mariano Duncan will be bench coach for the New York Mets' Class A Brooklyn Cyclones under new manager Ed Blankmeyer. Blankmeyer left St. John's in January 2020 after 24 seasons as coach to become manager of the Cyclones, but the 2020 minor league season was canceled due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. Blankmeyer wound up leading the Mets' alternate training site in Brooklyn, where players stayed in shape as they awaited callups.
