RELIEVER TIM BYRDAK ALSO TRAVELS TO NEW YORK FOR A REVIEW OF HIS LEFT KNEE
Tue, 13 Mar 2012 04:42 PM EDT

N.Y. Mets 3rd baseman David Wright and left-handed reliever Tim Byrdak will journey to New York for more evaluation, GM Sandy Alderson announced. NFL odds

Wright injured a left rib cage muscle during an infield drill early in camp and still has to appear in a Grapefruit League game. He recently has been taking grounders, but has not yet been cleared to start throwing or swinging a bat. Alderson asserted Wright will have “ultrasound-guided” cortisone shot in Manhattan.

Byrdak, the lone left-hander predicted to be in the Mets’ bullpen to open the season, said he has been suffering from knee irritation since the offseason. NFL spreads

Mets manager Terry Collins raised arthroscopic surgery as a possibility to clean out the joint, but added it’s early to conclude that is the course of action since Byrdak won’t be completely examined in N.Y. Still, even a cleanout might be a minimal issue, the manager maintained.

The Mets need Byrdak on the line-up because they don’t have another bona fide lefty specialist in camp. Collins even mentioned Josh Edgin as a muster chance if Byrdak missed time. Edgin — who is now on the board in the manager’s office with other left-handed relievers — is not even in top camp. He has not appeared above Class A in the minors. Collins also identified top veteran Garrett Olson as a real possibility, or Chuck James. Daniel Herrera, another left-hander, is idled with a back muscle issue.

As for Wright, Collins minimized the issue. At first, though, Wright had been anticipated to see a team doctor, Struan Coleman, at the team’s spring coaching complex. Now he is accompanying Byrdak to NY.

The Mets have been ruined in camp by rib cage/oblique issues. Collins counted 5 players in total impacted by that specific matter, including an injury to Scott Hairston that possible will land the backup outfielder on the disabled list to open the season.

Collins said the injury did not occur 20 years back, and is partly due to players bulking up their cores so much these days. The chief announced team officers already have tried to find out how to encounter the problem. The Mets now are taking fewer swings in the batting cage. Collins said the franchise also is taking a look into dehydration and caffeine intake as potential contributors.

“You better think it’s troubling,” Collins said. “And we have no responses. They are in a large amount of camps. (Marlins manager) Ozzie Guillen tells me they have got it in their camp. He revealed he has got a guy that blew an oblique jumping up for a ball, reaching up. So they are all over.

“I think it’s a mix of everything. I think it’s a mixture of dehydration. I suspect it’s a mixture of they are so powerful. And I believe it’s a combination that they work their butts off. I mean, the simplest thing is to go to Scottie (Hairston as an example). He swung too much the 1st day. It’s our fault we didn’t back him off. And he began to feel tightness and failed to back off. So there are plenty of elements related.”
