  • Miami Marlins vs. New York Mets = 04/01 - 04/03

    Monday, 1st April,
    7:10 PM EDT
    Marlins Park


    Steven Matz, LH (_-_, _.__, _ Ks) - New York Mets

    Caleb Smith, LH (_-_, _.__, _ Ks) - Miami Marlins

    METS: The Mets were relatively unconcerned that Matz posted a 7.47 ERA in five spring starts. They’re more interested in the fact that the oft-injured Matz threw a career-high 30 starts and 154 innings last season, and was healthy again this spring.

    MARLINS: Back from left lat surgery, Smith will make his first start since June 24, 2018, at Colorado. The lefty was leading all NL rookies in strikeouts at the time he was hurt, 88 in 77 1/3 innings. With his fastball, he's getting 25.5 percent strikeouts.

    Jason Vargas, LH (_-_, _.__, _ Ks) - New York Mets

    Jose Urena, RH (_-_, _.__, _ Ks) - Miami Marlins

    METS: Multiple injuries and a disjointed schedule were the reasons behind Vargas’ poor first half of 2018 -- a 2-8 record and 8.75 ERA over his first 13 outings. From that point forward, Vargas went 5-1 with a 2.62 ERA, giving the Mets hope for 2019.

    MARLINS: Urena received a scare on Opening Day when he was struck by a comebacker off his left knee. His velocity dipped from 95 mph in the first inning to 93 in the fifth. With the loss, Urena's string of six straight winning decisions was snapped.

    Jacob deGrom, RH (1-0, 0.00, 10 Ks) - New York Mets

    Trevor Richards, LH (0-0, 1.50, 4 Ks) - Miami Marlins

    METS: After firing six shutout innings vs. the Nats on Opening Day, deGrom needs one more quality start to match Bob Gibson for the most consecutive in MLB history. deGrom’s run of 25 such starts is tied with Eddie Cicotte for second place all-time.

    MARLINS: As a rookie last year, Richards had a 3.09 ERA in 11 2/3 innings, and he made two starts against the Mets. The righty had some tough luck in a no-decision against the Rockies in his first start of 2019.
