Shaun Marcum will start Saturday with pitch count

Shaun Marcum will make his Mets debut this Saturday against the Phillies at Citi Field, Terry Collins told reporters yesterday.

Today on WFAN, Collins said Marcum will be limited to 90 pitches.

Marcum threw five innings in an extended spring training game in Port St. Lucie this past weekend, after which he tossed additional pitches in the bullpen. He joined his team today at Citi Field.
