The Mets will leave Port St. Lucie one week from today, after which they’ll play in Montreal for two last exhibition games before Opening Day on March 31.
Today, the team continues their Grapefruit League season when Zack Wheeler starts against Ervin Santana and the Braves at 1:10 p.m. at Tradition Field.
The game will be broadcast live on SNY.
Ike Davis will play in today’s game, with Lucas Duda slated to start a few days later. Duda and Davis have not played in an official game since the first week of March. Terry Collins told reporters Tuesday he hopes to soon start using his projected starting lineup, while setting up his rotation and establishing roles in the bullpen.
Jon Niese is expected to resume throwing after getting an MRI and cortisone shot in his elbow earlier this week in New York.
