Training staff staying (mostly) intact

The Mets won't make major changes to their medical staff, but are flipping a pair of assignments.

According to Newsday, Ray Ramirez will remain head trainer with the major league club. He now will be assisted by Brian Chicklo, who oversaw the Florida operations last season after several years as a minor league trainer. Mike Herbst, who had been Ramirez's assistant, reportedly will flip roles with Chicklo and be assigned to Port St. Lucie.
