Mets outfielder Lucas Duda fractured his right wrist in early November while moving furniture and had a procedure a couple days later to repair the injury at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. But that should be a faint memory by Opening Day.
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Duda has experienced no setbacks thus far with his wrist and was recently cleared to begin hitting off a tee at his offseason home in southern California. “It’s going well, feels great,” Duda told Rubin on Sunday.
The 26-year-old batted .239/.329/.389 with 15 home runs, 15 doubles and 57 RBI across 459 plate appearances last summer for New York. He’s expected to serve as the Mets’ starting left fielder this season.
