Mets give Lucas Duda insurance policy a test drive at first base | New York Post

Bruce was tested twice against the Astros. In the second inning, Wilmer Flores bounced a throw from third base that Bruce scooped to record the final out. In the fourth, Bruce fielded a grounder and flipped to Jacob deGrom covering the bag for the final out. On that play, Bruce hesitated on his flip — a brief miscommunication — before getting the ball to deGrom.

“You’ve got to get the ball to Jake a little quicker,” Collins said. “But I saw stuff [Bruce] can learn and thought he handled himself well.”

Mets’ Duda, Who Had Back Trouble in 2016, Is Now Bothered by His Hips - The New York Times

Duda felt stiffness in his back and his hips after a recent workout. Although his back improved, his hips remained troublesome, Collins said, prompting Duda to receive a cortisone shot in each hip on Friday.

Collins said he had received no indication that the stiffness in Duda’s hips was related to last year’s back injury, but everything in the lower body is connected, he noted.

“We’re very fortunate at this time we’ve still got a ton of camp left,” Collins said.
