VIERA, Fla. -- Jeremy Hefner, who was struck in the right elbow Tuesday, should get back into a Grapefruit League game for an inning or two in the next two days, before the Mets break camp, according to Terry Collins.

Hefner is slated to pitch Game 4 of the regular season, next Friday against the Miami Marlins at Citi Field. So he could use the work to stay sharp after his last outing was cut short by the sharp one-hopper off the bat of Carlos Beltran.
