It will be Michael Wacha getting the start as the Mets face Tigers in Lakeland, Fla. on Tuesday at 1:05 p.m.
While Wacha is thought to be in competition with Steven Matz for the No. 5 spot in the starting rotation, it might not be that simple.
Andres Gimenez, Jake Marisnick, and J.D. Davis are the highlights of the lineup with the Mets traveling to Lakeland. Notable is that Davis, who has been getting lots of reps at third base this spring, is back at the hot corner.
After Wacha, Kevin Smith and Matt Blackham will be among those scheduled to pitch for New York. Another reliever to keep an eye on is Ryley Gilliam, who could potentially make an impact in the bullpen at some point this season.
