We are just one week away from Opening Day, as all thirty teams will be wrapping up their spring training camps this weekend. The Mets take on the Nationals today at 6:10pm after having the day off Wednesday. In their last game, the Mets won a close contest against the Cardinals, 8-7. Matt Harvey struck out five batters while allowing just one run in 5.1 innings pitched. Adrian Gonzalez, Wilmer Flores, and Travis d’Arnaud all hit home runs in Tuesday’s game.
Positive news came out of the Mets’ minor league camp, as Michael Conforto hit two home runs in a minor league scrimmage on Wednesday. He hopes to return before May 1st, the target date of his return from a dislocated shoulder he suffered last season.
Zack Wheeler will start against RHP Tanner Roark today. Wheeler allowed five runs in three innings in his last appearance, when he faced the Nationals on March 13th.
The Mets’ starting lineup is shown below:
- Brandon Nimmo – CF
