For him being added to it, and now we're stretching him out, that’s what we're looking for him for now for this season. Past that, it's something that obviously we can discuss but right now this is the plan with the current circumstances that have fallen in place for him. Initially, the Mets only needed to temporarily fill Michael Wacha’s rotation spot while he sat on the injured list with right shoulder inflammation.
Trea Turner is 5 for 9 with two home runs in the first two games of the Nationals’ visit to the New York Mets’ home, and Washington’s leadoff hitter has a four-game hit streak going too, over which he’s 7 for 17, which follows an 0 for 18 stretch at the plate for the 27-year-old. So, small sample sizes and all, yes, but he’s looked good in recent at bats.
Marcus Stroman's recovery from a torn left calf muscle was almost complete, and he was in line to possibly make his season debut for the Mets next week against the Marlins.
