Here are some nuggets from the Mets’ spring training on Thursday:
Tim Locastro, who was a bench player for the Yankees the past two seasons, reached base twice, with a single and a walk, in the Mets’ 3-0 loss to the Nationals at West Palm Beach, Florida.
The speedy Locastro is 12 for 33 (.364) this spring with six stolen bases.
Elieser Hernandez didn’t help his cause trying to win a bullpen job, allowing two earned runs on four hits and two walks in two innings.
The right-hander boasts an 8.31 ERA this spring.
