(Chris Soto: Hey....why not? As long as the extension is no longer than say 3 additional years...I'm all for it. Nothing in Duda's numbers last season suggest regression and with power being at such a premium in this era of baseball, when you have it, you need to hold onto it as best as you can.)
David Lennon | Newsday- Gee returned to a starting role when Zack Wheeler was lost to Tommy John surgery, with the assumption that he would take over the fifth spot once the regular season began. But after Sunday's seven-inning start, Gee said the Mets still have not told him of their plans. Manager Terry Collins suggested that Rafael Montero, who will start Monday against the Marlins, still is in contention for the spot. "We're going to wait a while," Collins said.
(Chris Soto: As it should be. Gee has pitched well since the Zack Wheeler injury, however, for every good start he has had....Montero has matched it. Quite honestly, I would not be surprised if the club is secretly showcasing Gee for a potential trade for an established left handed reliever. It's been rumored that the club is still interested in LHRP Rex Brothers and after the Rockies released Jhoulys Chacin, there seems to be a rotation spot to fill over there.)
(Chris Soto: Quite frankly, as much as I would like to see Reynolds make the team.....Ruben Tejada has had an excellent Spring Training both offensively and defensively from a versatility standpoint. I haven't seen him hit this well since his breakout 2012 season. So far he's hitting .260 with a .721 OPS thanks to 7 doubles and 11 RBIs in 17 games. In comparison though, Muno is hitting .381 with a .971 OPS in 21 games and Reynolds is even better with a .381 AVG and a .995 OPS in 19 games.)
