Mets manager Mickey Callaway announced the starting pitchers and relievers for the first three Grapefruit League games.
Zack Wheeler will start on Friday against the Braves at 1:10 p.m. on SNY, with Hansel Robles, Chris Flexen, Paul Sewald, Corey Oswalt, Jacob Rhame, Tyler Bashlor, Jamie Callahan, and Drew Smith also scheduled to pitch.
Seth Lugo will start on Saturday against the Cardinals at 1:10 p.m. on WPIX, with Kevin McGowan, Marcos Molina, P.J. Conlon, Corey Taylor, and Gerson Bautista also scheduled to pitch.
"So you'll get to see Bautista throw 100 -- he looks pretty good so far," Callaway added about the 22-year-old Bautista, who was acquired from the Red Sox along with Callahan and RHP Stephen Nogosek last July.
Robert Gsellman will start on Sunday against the Marlins at 1:10 p.m. on SNY, with Jeurys Familia, Jerry Blevins, AJ Ramos, Anthony Swarzak, and Rafael Montero also scheduled to pitch.
As they did last year, the Mets will be holding Noah Syndergaard, Jacob deGrom, Matt Harvey, and Steven Matz back until a bit later on.
