According to different Twitter reports the Mets are just proceeding with caution and are not overly concerned about Escobar’s status.
KBurkhardtSNY:Escobar says shoulder has no pain, but had some weakness. Pitched pain free in Venezuela this winter.
lenno212: Asked if he’d be ready for Opening Day, Kelvim Escobar said, “Oh yeah, I think so. It depends on how my arm responds to exercise.”
KBurkhardtSNY: Strenghtening program. He won’t pick up a ball yet, but feels confident he’ll be ready for opening day.
