Observations from Tuesday’s Mets workout:
Got It Covered
The Mets practiced pickoff throws to first and third base from the catcher Tuesday. Luis Rojas wants his players developing “muscle memory” for such situations.
Making the Rounds
Team president Sandy Alderson has been on the back fields during workouts the last two days. Alderson spent the last two springs in Arizona with the A’s, for whom he served as an adviser.
Caught My Eye
Former Phillie Jerad Eickhoff, in camp on a minor-league deal, was inducing swings and misses with his offspeed pitches during live batting practice.
Full-squad workouts continue in Port St. Lucie. The exhibition opener is Monday against the Marlins in Jupiter, Fla.
