Mets Today: Exhibition Opener Against Washington; Line-ups

The New York Mets open their exhibition schedule today against Washington at Port St. Lucie, with Rafael Montero going against Taylor Jordan.

Jacob deGrom, Logan Verrett, Miguel Socolovich, Adam Kolarek, Gonzalez Germen and Jeff Walters will also pitch for the Mets.

Manager Terry Collins said David Wright and Daniel Murphy will be eased into the exhibition schedule and won’t play. Eric Young, with tightness in his side, won’t play this weekend.

Ike Davis, 1b

Josh Satin, 3b

Lucas Duda, dh

Wilmer Flores, 2b

Travis d’Arnaud, c

Juan Lagares, cf

LINE-UP COMMENTS: Interesting to see Chris Young leading off. It’s because Eric Young is out, but Collins must also keep an eye on him in case Eric Young opens the season on the bench. … No surprise to see both Davis and Duda playing as they each need as many at-bats as possible.
