Curtis Granderson (calf) has returned to the Mets' starting lineup on Sunday.
Granderson has not started the last three games due to a calf issue, however, he has pinch-hit in two of them which gave credence to the belief that a DL stint was not necessary and he would be out for just a few days. He's back in the lineup Sunday and playing center field while also batting leadoff. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Miguel Castro will open the season in the majors.
Castro flew under the radar in the minors last season, but is making the rare jump from A-Ball to the majors. This is thanks to his (likely) temporary move to the bullpen for the Spring, which enabled his stuff to tick up a bit in shorter outings. He's likely next in line to receive saves should Brett Cecil fail, and the 20-year old is worth keeping an eye on. Analysis: Ben Diamond
