• Mets prospects Cory Vaughn, Danny Muno and Jack Leathersich all revealed on Twitter that the team has extended them non-roster invitations to big league camp. Though the Mets have not confirmed any list of non-roster invitees, they also expect pitcher Rafael Montero to compete for a job in camp, as well. Top overall prospect Noah Syndergaard should also be present.
• Don't expect the Mets to sign a starting pitcher anytime soon. Multiple agents predicted this week that the market for Minor League deals will not heat up until the remaining top free agents -- Masahiro Tanaka, Matt Garza and the rest -- find new teams. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson, meanwhile, said he hopes to sign a veteran pitcher to such an unguaranteed deal, with the intent of pitting him against Jenrry Mejia, Montero and Jacob deGrom in a Spring Training competition.
