Mets | Shaun Marcum progressing

New York Mets SP Shaun Marcum (neck) pitched in extended spring training Thursday, April 18, and didn't have any setbacks. He will try to get up to 80 pitches in his next outing.

Fantasy Tip: Marcum is getting close to being able to return to the majors, so keep him on your watch list in NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues. The Mets signed him to anchor their rotation, so expect Aaron Laffey to get bumped out when Marcum is ready.
