Player Notes
Lucas Duda drove in five runs with a homer and a double Monday in the Mets' 7-1 defeat of the Marlins.

Advice: Duda started the spring 4-for-31 with one RBI. In his last three games, he's 7-for-11 with two homers and nine RBI. We'd call that a rapid improvement.

Lucas Duda went 3-for-4 with a couple of RBI against the Cardinals on Sunday.

Advice: A nice day for Duda, starting against a lefty. John Mayberry Jr. will almost certainly outproduce Duda versus southpaws this season, but the Mets will go with Duda as an everyday guy anyway, at least initially. Duda has gone 5-for-8 the last two days to lift his spring average from .129 to .231.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports the Mets and Lucas Duda have had discussions about a long-term contract extension.

Advice: Duda said the talks have been "preliminary stuff and still in the works," so it doesn't sound like anything is close. Duda's agent, Dan Horwits, said the sides will table talks if a deal doesn't get done before Opening Day. Duda enjoyed a breakout year in 2014, swatting 30 homers and driving in 92 runs, and he appears to be the Mets' best answer at first base for the long run. As it stands, Duda won't be a free agent until after the 2017 season.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Lucas Duda will play against lefties to start the season.

Advice: There have been some whispers that Collins might platoon Duda after the first baseman hit .180/.264/.252 against southpaws last season, but the manager is sticking with Duda early on. Duda hit .253/.349/.481 with 30 homers and 92 RBI overall last year in a breakout season.
