Player Notes
Vic Black (shoulder) is scheduled to throw 20 pitches off of a mound on Saturday.

Advice: It will be his first time doing so since being shut down on March 9 with shoulder tendinitis. While he is progressing nicely, his availability for Opening Day remains doubtful.

Vic Black (shoulder) resumed throwing Tuesday.

Advice: Black hasn't appeared in a Grapefruit League game since March 9 due to shoulder tendinitis. He's starting to make some progress, but Mets general manager Sandy Alderson didn't sound particularly optimistic Tuesday about his chances of being ready for the season.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson acknowledged Tuesday that Vic Black (shoulder) is a question for Opening Day.

Advice: Black came down with shoulder tendinitis earlier this month and felt continued discomfort while throwing off flat ground last week, but he's scheduled to try throwing again on Tuesday. Even if he's pain-free, there might not be enough time for him to get ready for the season.

Vic Black (shoulder) will resume throwing Tuesday.

Advice: A previous report suggested Black would begin throwing again on Monday, but the Mets are saying this was the plan all along. Black has recently been dealing with shoulder tendinitis and felt continued discomfort after throwing off flat ground last Tuesday. He's running out of time to get ready for Opening Day.

Vic Black (shoulder) will begin throwing again Monday.

Advice: Black has been sidelined by shoulder tendinitis and was shut down after feeling discomfort during a throwing session last Tuesday. Black has been on anti-inflammatory medication to help remedy the situation. With roughly two weeks of camp left, Black will have to ramp it up quickly to be on the Mets' Opening Day roster.

Vic Black (shoulder) has been shut down for a few more days.

Advice: Black has recently been dealing with shoulder tendinitis and felt continued discomfort after throwing off flat ground on Tuesday. He took some anti-inflammatories and hopes to resume throwing in a couple of days, but he could be cutting it close to be ready for the start of the season. The Mets' bullpen is suddenly looking quite iffy.
