The Mets play a night game in Atlanta on Thursday, and will fly to California to play the Angels on Friday night, a 10 p.m. ET start.
Dillon Gee, Friday’s starter, will not fly out ahead of the game, but will travel with the team (Horwitz, April 10). Gee wants to stay with the team and doesn’t want to change his routine by taking an earlier flight.
The team will arrive in California in the early hours of Friday morning.
