Who is pitching for the Mets?
Matz, who owned a 4.21 ERA and 4.60 FIP over 160.1 innings (32 games) last season. He may have the upper hand, but Matz is battling for a rotation spot with Michael Wacha this spring, so getting off to a good start on Sunday would be ideal for the big lefty.
Who is pitching for the Cardinals?
RHP Adam Wainwright, who is entering his 15th season in MLB, all with the Cards. The three-time All-Star had a 4.19 ERA over 171.2 innings (31 starts) last season for St. Louis.
The Mets will take on the World Series-champion Nationals on Monday at 1:05 p.m. Top pitching prospect David Peterson will get the start in that one.
