• Mets general manager Sandy Alderson reiterated yet again Wednesday that he does not expect to sign Stephen Drew, telling MLB Network that he would not be surprised to see agent Scott Boras hold out until after the First-Year Player Draft in June. At that time, teams will no longer need to forfeit a compensatory pick to sign the free-agent shortstop.
• Gee, Noah Syndergaard, Jenrry Mejia, Daisuke Matsuzaka, Carlos Torres and Kyle Farnsworth are scheduled to pitch two innings apiece in Thursday's intrasquad game at Tradition Field. Steven Matz, Jose Valverde and Joel Carreno will each pitch one inning in the game, which fans can watch for a $6 donation. The game is scheduled to start around 11:30 a.m. ET.
