New York Mets
The New York Mets have been bitten all over the lineup by the injury bug. Seems like every key contributor to last years success, has been hurt. The Mets most recently put Michael Conforto and Yonis Cespedes on the DL for the rest of the season.
Matt Harvey (4-3, 5.25 ERA) will be making his return start from the DL. Even before his injury, Harvey looked like a pitcher who was on the way to the bullpen.
For his sake, let’s hope he got the rest he needed. Harvey has not faced the Astros this year, and will be on a pitch count in this game.
With everything that has gone on in the city the past week or so, it is understandable that the Astros lost two of three against the Rangers. Now, teams better look out.
The Astros acquired Justin Verlander from the Tigers to add depth to the starting rotation and should give some life to the Astros clubhouse.
Cameron Maybin was brought over as well from the Angels.
Charlie Morton (10-6, 3.88 ERA) will start game one of this day/night doubleheader. Morton has not made a start against the Mets this year, but has been good in home starts. He is 7-3 with a 3.65 ERA at home this year. Opposing lineups are averaging .214 against him in home outings this season.
