The Marlins face the Mets in a 3 game series. The Mets will need to go 9-3 to reach 500. Jordany Valdespin makes his return to Queens. Valdespin did not appear when the Mets face the fish on Labor Day weekend. He is batting #7th on today’s Marlins lineup. Jake deGrom makes another start tonight against a Stanton-less Marlins lineup. He is 8-6 with a 2.62 ERA this year. He is one of two prime candidates for the rookie of the year award.
