Mets | Jordany Valdespin stating his case

New York Mets 2B Jordany Valdespin (groin) is stating his case to make the opening day roster by hitting his third spring homer off Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander Monday, March 11. However, he left the game early after being hit by a pitch in his groin. "I'm good," Valdespin said. "I'm good. Everything is fine. The doctor said nothing bad. Everything is good. Everything is working normally. Everything is right." Valdespin is batting .370 (10-for-27) with six RBIs in spring training, and he'll continue to see time in the outfield, according to manager Terry Collins. Valdespin is likely directly competing with OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis now. At this point, Valdespin seems to be a lock for the roster.
