Relievers making progress

Three injured Mets relievers are making progress in their returns from injuries.

D.J. Carrasco, who sprained an ankle, is eyeing a minor league game Sunday, pitching coach Dan Warthen said.

Tim Byrdak, who underwent March 13 surgery to repair torn meniscus cartilage in his left knee, had the stitches out Thursday and planned to toss a baseball at distances up to 100 feet today.

Pedro Beato (shoulder) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Thursday -- his first since getting shut down.
