The rule is you’re supposed to take at least five major leaguers for a spring training road game. The Mets will barely make it for tomorrow’s game at Lakeland against the Tigers.
The only projected starter scheduled for the near three-hour trip is right fielder Ryan Church. Also going are Ramon Castro, Pedro Feliciano, Jorge Sosa and Mike Pelfrey.
The regulars will make the considerably shorter 20-minute drive Thursday to Jupiter for the Cardinal game.
