Shaun Marcum: May Avoid DL
Update: The Mets are trying to prevent Marcum (neck) from starting the year on the DL by giving him a 75-pitch outing in Florida with the plan of starting him for the fifth or sixth game of the season, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.

Recommendation: The decision may ultimately be determined by how he responds to the 75-pitch appearance, but this is an encouraging potential outcome after it seemed certain that Marcum was headed for the disabled list.
