Mets 'extremely excited about where Dellin Betances is physicially'

New York Mets relief pitcher Dellin Betances has recently participated in live batting practice and simulated games.

What It Means:

Betances is expected to be ready for July's training period after missing last season with a shoulder and Achilles injury. Expect the 32-year old veteran to claim a setup role in the Mets' bullpen if he can remain healthy.

Betance's current yearly projection includes a 3.04 ERA, 2 saves, and 30 strikeouts in 20.7 innings pitched.
