Jacob deGrom once again gets the ball for the Mets, as they take on the Cardinals at Clover Park in Port St. Lucie at 1:10 p.m.
Jeff McNeil is back in the lineup, and he will look to continue his hot spring. He's slashing .435/.458/.696 with a homer and three doubles over nine games. The Mets also gave an update on Michael Conforto's status on Tuesday, saying the veteran outfielder has an oblique strain that leaves Opening Day in doubt.
