Observations from Sunday’s Mets workout:
Carlos Carrasco threw his first bullpen session since his delayed arrival to spring training, working with catcher James McCann. The veteran right-hander said he believes he should still have enough time to build up to be ready for the start of the regular season.

The Mets’ fundamental focus on Sunday was working on cutoffs and relays from the outfield. It’s part of the defensive effort that they hope will make strides this season.
