Luis Guillorme busts out of spring slump in Mets’ win
Here are some nuggets from Mets’ spring training on Friday:
Luis Guillorme had been among the slumping Mets players this spring, but he delivered two hits and three RBIs in a 6-1 exhibition victory over the Marlins in Port St. Lucie.
Guillorme reached base three times and is batting .250 in the Grapefruit League.
Francisco Alvarez went 0-for-2 with a walk and is batting .130 this spring without a home run, with much of his focus on handling the Mets’ pitching staff as he shares catching duties with Tomas Nido.
The Mets’ other primary catcher, Omar Narvaez, is playing for Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic.
