The Mets beat the Astros yesterday and today they look to make it two games in a row as they head to Jupiter to take on the Marlins.
Ronny Mauricio, one of the Mets top prospects, got a little game time yesterday and he got a hit against a major pitcher. It was pretty great to see.
Back to things though that will impact the Mets in 2020 – Syndergaard looked great. He allowed back to back doubles to start off the third which turned into a run, otherwise he was perfect and he struck out 4. Gsellman is having one of his best springs yet, he added another 2.0 scoreless innings of work while striking out two. The Mets bullpen roster looks pretty filled to the top with long-reliever / spot starter types, but Ramirez on an NRI continued to make his name known yesterday adding in two scoreless innings of work while striking out 4.
Yesterday we looked at before the game how many Mets players were cold with the bats. Those players ended up having a pretty good day yesterday. Cano knocked in two hits, including a double, Alonso had two hits, Rosario went 1-3 and his one was an extra base hit. More of this please!
Lock It Down.
Walker Lockett gets the start today. As stated earlier, the Mets are really flooded with pitchers who fit his profile this year. This will be his second outing in spring this year. In his last one he allowed no runs and a walk in 1.2 innings of work. We assume he’ll go 2-3 innings today. In his first year with the Mets last year he pitched in 9 games including 4 starts over 22.2 innings posting a 8.34 ERA, 6.71 FIP and 1.721 WHIP. He had a much more down to Earth 3.82 ERA in 66.0 innings in the minors.
After Lockett, Oswalt who is competing for similar spot, is listed to go today. He’ll be joined by Lugo Bashlor, Payano, Whalen, and Gonzalez. Bashlor had a really rough go of it his last start, he’ll be looking to turn it around today.
- Jeff McNeil
- Brandon Nimmo
- Pete Alonso
- Matt Adams
- Amed Rosario
- Jake Marisnick
- Eduardo Nunez
- Tomas Nido
- Jarrett Parker
The top of the lineup looks normal for the Mets. Pete Alonso and Amed Rosario yesterday had good days at the plate, and they desparately needed one. We’ll be looking to see if they continue that today. Fermin, who has impressed as a minor league player this past week, is listed as traveling with the team today too.
Let’s Go Mets!
