Beato and Isringhausen are impressing Collins early
"I see an outstanding arm with a better breaking ball than I heard he had," said manager Terry Collins. "It comes out of his hand pretty easy. I can see why the reports were pretty glowing."
In terms of a roster spot, Beato's advantage comes from the fact that if he does not make the team, the Mets must offer him back to the Orioles for a $25,000 fee.
Also impressing Collins early in camp is Jason Isringhausen, who may win not only a roster spot, but also a job at the back end of the bullpen.
"Never rule out Isringhausen with what he's been doing," Collins said. "His experience alone, you've got to put that in the mix."
