PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — Three big pieces of the New York Mets' pitching staff are closer to appearing in spring training games.

Starters Jon Niese and Bartolo Colon and closer Bobby Parnell pitched batting practice with fielders Thursday. Niese (shoulder) and Colon (calf) have been slowed by minor injuries, and Parnell is coming back from surgery to repair a herniated disk in his neck.

David Wright, David Murphy, Ike Davis and Ruben Tejada took turns at bat. Colon pitched three innings, Niese threw two and Parnell threw one.
