Just finished talking with Rick Peterson, and here’s what The Jacket had to say:
-ON DUANER SANCHEZ: “We want to build up some arm strength. We have plenty of time. Because you have the time, you take it.”Â Translation: Sanchez keeps saying he’s good, but he obviously has more work to do.
-ON ORLANDO HERNANDEZ: Peterson said Hernandez had a good day, but he’s still searching for the right mechanics in his wind-up to take pressure off the bunion. The Mets are hoping for Hernandez to throw batting practice Wednesday. Translation:Â We’ll see.
