The game starts at 1:10 p.m. on SNY.
The Mets have an off day Wednesday. Dillon Gee and Jonathon Niese will start Thursday in split-squad games (Houston and St. Louis, respectively). Bartolo Colon will start Friday against the Cardinals and Noah Syndergaard?will go Saturday against the?Tigers.
1) Matt Harvey will pitch in one of the team's?first five regular-season games, but Collins isn't sure if Harvey will pitch the home opener against the Phillies April 13. The Mets open the season on the road at Washington and Atlanta.
2) Harvey will be used the same way the Cardinals used Adam Wainwright in 2012, when Wainwright pitched 198 2/3 innings after missing the 2011 season after Tommy John surgery (which Harvey had in 2013 and forced him to miss last season).
