Dillon Gee 10 (Baron)

This week’s and next week’s Mets rotation

The Mets say Zack Wheeler will start against the Nationals on Tuesday.

Dillon Gee will start Wednesday against the Astros.

Bartolo Colon will skip facing the Nationals again and instead pitch in a minor-league game Thursday.

Jenrry Mejia will pitch Friday and Daisuke Matsuzaka will start Saturday, in Montreal, against the Blue Jays.

In other words, Gee is likely to pitch Opening Day, followed by Colon. It’s going to be a long gap between starts for Wheeler, so I wonder how the team will handle him? Also, this more or less indicates Matsuzaka is destine for the rotation, with Mejia going to Triple-A, though that has yet to be officially announced.
