News: Cuddyer hit his fourth home run of the spring Friday.
Impact: Cuddyer is hitting .333 in 27 at-bats so far this spring. What's more impressive is that he has just three strikeouts but that if offset by just one walk. Look for Cuddyer to hit in the middle of the Mets lineup this year.

News: Cuddyer may play left rather than right field, which is where he had been projected to land when he signed with the Mets, Matt Ewalt of the Record reports.
Impact: Manager Terry Collins said Sunday that he likely prefers Cuddyer in left and Curtis Granderson in right. Cuddyer, who last played left field in 2006, had been expected to play right because he is deaf in his left ear and hearing the outfield calls would be easier there than in left field. This arrangement could change as the team gets closer to the regular season once Collins has seen both outfielders in the field together.
