Mets Lineup Against Nationals

Here’s the Mets lineup against Washington for today’s exhibition opener. The note next to the player’s name is his expected Opening Day role:

Alejandro De Aza, DH: Role player. Mets say they aren’t shopping him.

Juan Lagares, CF: On the bench with playing time severely limited after Yoenis Cespedes resigned.

Michael Conforto, LF: Opening Day starter in left. Batting third might not be a bad spot for him.

Wilmer Flores, 3B: Backup at all four infield positions.

Kevin Plawecki, C: Backup catcher.

Marc Krauss, 1B: Minor leagues.

Eric Campbell, RF: Minor leagues.

Ruben Tejada, SS: Bench player.

Dilson Herrara, 2B: If he makes the team it will be off the bench.

Rafael Montero, RHP: Starter in minor leagues.
