The New York Mets’ game against the Houston Astros was rained out today, forcing them to alter their pitching rotation.
Fifth-starter candidate John Lannan, scheduled to start, will now work Friday against St. Louis at Port St. Lucie. Daisuke Matsuzaka will also pitch against the Cardinals. Rafael Montero and Steven Matz, also scheduled to pitch today, will go tomorrow.
* Bartolo Colon, who has been bothered with a tight calf, threw three scoreless innings in an intrasquad game and said he will be ready to pitch Monday against Miami.
