"I can't swing it yet," Conforto said, "But I just want to feel it in my hands. I'm really excited to start swinging again." 3 months after his surgery in his shoulder Conforto is patiently waiting for when he gets the go ahead to start playing again. As a fan favorite and a top player on the Mets (in my opinion the best on the team both in age and skill, mostly offensively however, his defense is great but occasionally unreliable--he just lacks experience with Cespedes and Lagares in the outfield as well). I am not worried about Conforto coming back for opening day. As long as he is back by the 2018 season and playing well, healthy, up in the majors, I'll be happy. I wonder what Mickey Calllaway's policy will be regarding rest. I hope it is a little more accommodating than Terry Collins's so that there are fewer injuries this upcoming year. In addition I think the player development and strength training procedures are worked on. The Mets are not known to have a strict player development policy and outside of practice and game policy, which I wish they would crack down on. Many managers have really put in very strict policies and it results really well every time. Controversial policies like mindfulness and sports therapy/psychology have also proven effective and are not implemented enough in my opinion. What do you think about those policies? If you were a GM what would you put into place?
