Right-hander Michael Wacha will make his second start of the spring in Jupiter, Fla. against the Marlins at 1:05 p.m.
Amed Rosario will hit leadoff and start at shortstop for the Mets. Rosario has yet to reach base in his nine at-bats this spring, but he did turn the corner last season. In his final 89 games, Rosario slashed .322/.353/.453 and belted seven homers while driving in 36 runs. Along with Jeff McNeil and Brandon Nimmo, Rosario is an option to hit leadoff once Opening Day rolls around. Dom Smith made the trip, as well, and will play first base and hit third.
