Chris Basak was the offensive star, putting up three RBI in a 2-for-2 day that also saw him
score two runs. Victor Diaz and Sandy Martinez each homered.
Pedro Martinez finally got on the mound against live hitters,
throwing 61 pitches against minor leaguers Corey Coles and Rafael Arroyo. The Mets were
pleased with Martinez's stamina in the effort, and pitching coach Rick Peterson called it a
"big step forward."
And perhaps more importantly, test results on Cliff Floyd's kidney proved far
better than originally believed. After being told his kidneys were operating at 48
percent efficiency as a result of a preliminary team physical, Floyd was sent for further
testing. The results of those tests showed him at 65 percent and Floyd said that means there
is "nothing unusual."
Floyd has changed his diet and has increased his water intake, which all reinforces the idea
that he'll be on the field for Opening Day.
