Justin Turner is expected to get some reps in the outfield this spring.
"We talked about it at the end of the season last year," said Turner, referencing a conversation with Mets manager Terry Collins. "He told he wanted me to get out there, get some reps. I don't know if that means I'm going to be playing for a spot, or it's just another couple of positions to maybe get some more at-bats." Turner has never played the outfield in pro ball, but some extra versatility wouldn't hurt. The 28-year-old batted .273/.326/.373 with one home run, 17 RBI and a .698 OPS in 175 plate appearances last season while making starts at all four infield positions.
