Mets announce first weeks starters

When probable pitchers are announced, you know baseball is around the corner. Here are the planned starters for the first week of exhibition games (MetsBlog.com)

March 4: Dillon Gee
March 5: Bartolo Colon, Gabriel Ynoa in relief
March 6 (on SNY): Matt Harvey, Noah Syndergaard in relief
March 7 (split-squad, home): Jacob deGrom, Matt Bowman in relief
March 7 (split-squad, away): Steven Matz, Rafael Montero in relief
March 8: Jon Niese, Tyler Pill and Dillon Gee in relief
March 9: Zack Wheeler, Carlos Torres in relief

I’m very excited to see that we will be seeing Matt Harvey on SNY in 8 days. I do wonder, however, why the Mets aren’t having Wheeler pitch until the 9th. I know its only a few days, but I think he should be pitching on the 4th as well. Gee has two starts before Wheeler toes the rubber? Interesting.
