deGrom, Harvey to follow Thor in rotation

March 29th, 2017

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- The Mets announced their opening-series rotation on Wednesday, revealing that and Matt Harvey will follow against the Braves at Citi Field.

After Syndergaard opens the Mets' season on Monday opposite Braves right-hander , deGrom will face former teammate two days later. Harvey will then wrap up the three-game series opposite left-hander on Thursday.

The Mets have yet to announce the rest of their rotation, in part because they are waiting to see how quickly recovers from left elbow soreness. If Matz is able to pitch, he and would be heavy favorites to round out the rotation. Otherwise, Gsellman, Zack Wheeler and would all be candidates for the final two spots.
