Mets Spring Training Update: Injury-Plagued Pitchers Gain Momentum as Senga, Diaz and Fujinami Show Progress

Mets Updates: Kodai Senga shows progress, Edwin Diaz’s next moves

During spring training, the Mets have been making updates on their players. Senga recently received a platelet-rich plasma injection in his shoulder and is expected to begin ramping up his activity soon. Manager Carlos Mendoza provided an update on Senga’s progress, stating that he is feeling well and making progress in his shoulder exercises. Senga may need approximately six weeks to fully ramp up once cleared to throw, potentially returning to the Mets in May.

Meanwhile, Diaz has been pitching in intrasquad games since his injury last March and showcased his fastball reaching between 96 and 98 mph. He expressed readiness to compete and is looking forward to playing in a back field/minor league game before making his Grapefruit League debut. Fujinami returned to camp after a personal issue in Japan and is preparing for his first game action of the spring. With minor league options remaining, Fujinami could secure a bullpen spot for Opening Day with the Mets having flexibility to start him in the minors if needed. He has been throwing long bullpens and appears ready for his upcoming game on Thursday.
