Mets Lineup

  1. LF Brandon Nimmo
  2. SS Amed Rosario
  3. 2B Robinson Canó
  4. 1B Pete Alonso
  5. C Wilson Ramos
  6. RF Carlos Gómez
  7. 3B Todd Frazier
  8. CF Juan Lagares
  9. P Jacob deGrom (3.26 ERA, 3.12 FIP, 33.0 K%, 43.4 Hard Hit% in 47.0 IP)

Notes: The Mets won all five previous games in this season series, outscoring the Fish 34-15...Outfielder Michael Conforto has been especially productive against Miami pitching (.588/.696/1.000, 2 HR in 23 PA). However, he won’t play a role this weekend after being placed on the injured list with a concussion. Instead, veteran Carlos Gómez earns the call-up from Triple-A.

Marlins Lineup

  1. CF Jon Berti
  2. RF Garrett Cooper
  3. 3B Brian Anderson
  4. 1B Neil Walker
  5. 2B Starlin Castro
  6. C Jorge Alfaro
  7. LF Harold Ramírez
  8. SS Miguel Rojas
  9. P Trevor Richards (4.46 ERA, 5.20 FIP, 21.5 K%, 34.2 Hard Hit% in 42.1 IP)

Notes: Rule 5 Draft pick Riley Ferrell (biceps tendinitis) began his minor league rehab assignment with Jacksonville on Thursday, tossing one perfect inning on 17 pitches. With no setbacks, I’d except the Marlins to bring him up in early June and carry him on the roster for the remainder of the season...Chief Revenue Officer Adam Jones sat down with Front Office Sports to reflect on the “Our Colores” rebranding and look forward to big-picture financial decisions facing the franchise in the near future...Tonight is Cuban Heritage Night at Marlins Park, and it’s also Armed Forces Weekend. Details included in the press release below.
