Today in a nutshell:
- Duaner Sanchez says he’ll be ready by Opening Day, but nobody else is saying it. Read about it tomorrow in The Journal News.
- Orlando Hernandez probably won’t begin playing catch until Tuesday.
- Catcher Paul Lo Duca returned to practice.
- Manager Willie Randolph said if others in the lineup perform, the Mets won’t have to rely on power from Shawn Green.
- Phil Humber wasn’t sharp throwing batting practice.
- Oliver Perez, Tom Glavine and Chan Ho Park will start the first three exhibition games.
