Five B-Mets invited to MLB camp

As the days keep ticking down to when pitchers and catchers report for the start of Spring Training, the list of players the New York Mets will consider for their roster continues to grow.

Every member of the 40-man roster will be invited, including former B-Mets Jacob de Grom, Josh Edgin, Jeurys Familia, Dillon Gee, Gonzalez Germen, Erik Goeddel, Matt Harvey (inj.), Jenrry Mejia, Jon Niese, Bobby Parnell, Jeff Walters, Zach Wheeler, Juan Centeno, Travis d'Arnaud, Ike Davis, Wilmer Flores, Zach Lutz, Daniel Murphy, Josh Satin, Ruben Tejada, Wilfredo Tovar, David Wright, Matt den Dekker, Lucas Duda, Juan Lagares, Kirk Nieuwenhuis, and Cesar Puello.
