2018 spring training

Mets Spring Training Pre-Game Report – 3/7/18

As New York City will be pummeled by snow today, both New York teams will square off in a much warmer and sunnier Port St. Lucie, Florida today as the Mets take on the Yankees in Grapefruit League action. The Mets come off of a 9-5 victory over the Astros which culminated in a Philip Evans walkoff grand slam in the bottom of the ninth inning. Jason Vargas had a somewhat shaky outing, allowing two runs, four hits, and a walk in 2 2/3 innings.

Zack Wheeler will start against RHP Domingo German, a 25-year old prospect who made his MLB debut in 2017. German had a solid season in the limited amount of appearances he made for the Bronx Bombers, pitching for an ERA of 3.14, an FIP of 3.44, and an xFIP of 3.52.

The Mets’ starting lineup is shown below:

  1. Asdrubal Cabrera – 2B
  2. Yoenis Cespedes – LF
  3. Jay Bruce – DH
  4. Todd Frazier – 3B
  5. Adrian Gonzalez – 1B
  6. Jose Reyes – SS
  7. Travis d’Arnaud – C
  8. Juan Lagares – CF
  9. Matt den Dekker – RF
