The New York Mets will look to improve to 5-0, as they send Dillon Gee to the mound to square off against Ross Detwiler of the Washington Nationals, tonight at 7:10 pm in Citi Field:
Gee, a 13 game winner in 2011, was 2-0 with a 3.60 ERA versus the Nationals last season. While he faded down the stretch, allowing 35 earned runs over his last ten starts (53 1/3 IP), Gee started his 2011 campaign with a 8-1 record, allowing 30 earned runs over 76 innins; which was good for a 3.55 ERA.
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, David Wright (who was originally in the lineup) was scratched with a bruised right pinkie:
WFAN Mets beat writer, Ed Coleman was a guest of the Mike Francesa show this afternoon and said the injury is nothing serious, but the Mets are taking precautionary measures:
It’s not that serious. But, I think what their thinking is, he goes out cold night or whatever, he makes it worse. They don’t want something that could be a couple of days to go on for couple of weeks. Especially not with the way he’s playing. … What their thinking is, he misses tonight, the day game tomorrow. They have an off day Thursday and he can play Friday in Philadelphia. … They figure he can be back by Friday if they treat this now and keep him out of the lineup for a couple of games.”
