New York Mets
The Mets skipped Jason Vargas in the rotation to get back to Steven Matz on five days of rest. Matz’s numbers look dominant in the first two games of the season but he hasn’t quiet been that.
He’s got a 0.87 ERA but has had to pitch out of trouble in each of his first two starts. He was removed in the middle of the sixth inning in his first start after having given up six hits and a run. He only got through five in his second, despite giving up just two hits. In that start, he didn’t have his usual command and walked four.
Jacob deGrom got hit hard in Tuesday’s loss to Minnesota. He gave up eight hits and six runs in four innings and the Mets’ bullpen didn’t look prepared to come into the game on such short notice. The Twins finished with 14 runs on 17 hits.
New York hosts the Twins one more time before skipping town for Atlanta. The Mets are in the middle of a stretch of nine games in nine days.
After getting swept in Philadelphia to open the season, Atlanta has won seven of eight to just about catch up with the Phillies. The Braves won in Colorado on Tuesday, 7–1, and go for the road sweep on Wednesday before beginning this series back at home.
Atlanta hasn’t named a starting pitcher yet for this game. Max Fried went on Tuesday and Kevin Gausman will go on Wednesday. It won’t be Julio Teheran, either.
Mike Foltynewicz has yet to make his debut because of soreness in his elbow. He is making progress, however, and may be ready to pitch as early as this series, likely Sunday.
The Braves’ front office also made a big announcement this week with the news that it had extended Ronald Acuna Jr. to an eight-year, $100 million deal. The reigning NL Rookie of the Year is now signed through 2026 with team options for the two seasons to follow.

Free New York Mets vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction: under.
Obviously we’ve got to get word from Atlanta on who is starting. It could be Sean Newcomb, in which case I would be hesitant about backing the under. Otherwise, I’m on board because Matz has shown a propensity to pitch out of trouble already this season, which is kind of the next step for him. Besides, the Mets seem determined to play low-scoring games this season, which can last for a while.
