KEY GAME INFORMATION
NY METS: 2017 70-92, fourth place
MANAGER Mickey Callaway (first season)
ADDITIONS: 3B Todd Frazier, RF Jay Bruce, LHP Jason Vargas, 1B Adrian Gonzalez, RHP Anthony Swarzak, LHP Matt Purke, C Jose Lobaton
SUBTRACTIONS: Manager Terry Collins, LHP Josh Smoker, LHP Josh Edgin, RHP Chasen Bradford, OF Norichika Aoki, RHP Erik Goeddel, RHP Tyler Pill, LHP Tommy Milone, OF Travis Taijeron
OUTLOOK: Callaway had great success with Cleveland's arms, and the injury-plagued Mets are counting on his methods, along with new pitching coach Dave Eiland, to keep their talented but fragile rotation intact. New York also overhauled its medical department, hoping to keep star players on the field. Syndergaard and deGrom make for an imposing 1-2 punch. So if Harvey, Matz and Zack Wheeler -- even one or two of them -- can finally stay healthy and approach their initial big league form, the pitching staff could be terrific again after unraveling last year with a 5.01 ERA that ranked 28th in the majors. Vargas was signed to eat innings but will miss some time at the beginning of the season after surgery for a broken right (nonpitching) hand. All-Star outfielder Michael Conforto (27 HRs, .384 OBP, .939 OPS) is targeting a May 1 return from surgery for a dislocated left shoulder. His status is critical to a lineup that lacks speed and a natural leadoff hitter. Nimmo made strides last season and is a potential candidate for that role while platooning early with Juan Lagares to fill Conforto's spot in center field. After the Mets spent nearly $90 million to plug holes in free agency, it still might be a stretch to envision them seriously challenging star-studded Washington for NL East supremacy. But with better health in a soft division, they could certainly rejoin the wild-card hunt.
ATLANTA: 2017 72-90, third place
MANAGER Brian Snitker (third season)
ADDITIONS: RHP Brandon McCarthy, RHP Anibal Sanchez, LHP Scott Kazmir, INF Charlie Culberson, OF Preston Tucker, OF Ronald Acuna, 3B Austin Riley, OF Jeff Decker, 2B Christian Colon, RHP Shane Carle
SUBTRACTIONS: OF Matt Kemp, RHP R.A. Dickey, 3B Adonis Garcia, 1B Matt Adams, INF Jace Peterson, RHP Jason Motte
OUTLOOK: Teheran, Foltynewicz and Newcomb have provided reasons this spring to believe they can improve their 2017 numbers. For a change, the spring spotlight was on a position player; Acuna was hitting .432 with 4 home runs, 11 RBI and 4 steals when he was sent to minor league camp. The move involving the 20-year-old top prospect was expected. It was made to maintain an extra full season of contractual control down the road, but Acuna likely will be recalled in April and immediately start in left field. He could provide a needed power bat to help Freeman in the middle of the lineup. The Braves likely are still at least a year away from contending in the NL East, but improved starting pitching could push them closer to .500 this year.
PREVIEW
Mets' Wheeler feels right at home vs. Braves
 

ATLANTA -- Zack Wheeler got to make his major league debut nearly five years ago back home in Atlanta with his family and friends watching and the New York Mets right-hander didn't disappoint.

The graduate of suburban East Paulding High School earned a victory at Turner Field on June 18, 2013 while becoming the first Mets pitcher to throw six shutout innings or more in his first game.

Now Wheeler gets to pitch for the first time at the Braves' two-year-old SunTrust Park on Sunday as he continues his comeback at age 27 after missing the 2015 and 2016 seasons because of elbow surgery.

Mike Foltynewicz is the scheduled starter for Atlanta as the Braves try to win the four-game series after scoring twice in the ninth inning for a 4-3 victory Saturday night.

The winning run came on a bunt base hit by Ender Inciarte as the Braves (12-8) moved within two games of the first-place Mets (14-6) in the National League East.

Wheeler has pitched twice since making one start for Triple-A Las Vegas and is 1-1 with a 2.17 ERA while striking out nine and walking four in 13 innings.

The former first-round draft choice of San Francisco held Miami to two hits and a run over seven innings in his season debut on April 11 and has earned a continuing rotation spot even when left-hander Jason Vargas is ready to come off the disabled list next week.

The odd man out will be Matt Harvey, who is being sent to the bullpen in hopes of him getting back on track after allowing six runs over the first three innings in a loss to the Braves on Thursday to start the series.

Harvey said after falling to 0-2 with a 6.00 ERA that "I'm a starting pitcher" and he isn't happy about going to the bullpen.

"On a scale of 1 to 10, obviously I'm at a 10 with being (upset)," Harvey said Saturday after manager Mickey Callaway announced the move before the third game of the series.

Harvey is not just angry at the Mets, though. He's angry with his work so far.

"My performance hasn't been there and I just have to do whatever I have to do to get back in the starting rotation," he said.

Wheeler has made eight career starts against the Braves, going 4-2 with a 2.94 ERA. Four of the starts came at Turner Field, where he was 2-1 with a 1.93 ERA.

First baseman Freddie Freeman, who has thrived against Mets pitching in his career, is the only Braves hitter to have success against Wheeler, going 7-for-14 with two doubles and a home run.

Foltynewicz (1-1) got a no-decision Tuesday against Philadelphia, but the right-hander lowered his ERA to 2.53 while allowing four hits and a run over six innings.

The 27-year-old first-round draft choice of Houston has fanned 26 over 21 1/3 innings in his four starts and continued to get more comfortable working out of a modified stretch with no one on base.

"It's just to keep things quiet," Foltynewicz said. "In the past, I had too many unnecessary moving parts."

Foltynewicz didn't face the Mets last season and has pitched only 10 1/3 innings against them in his career, going 0-1 with a 10.45 ERA in two starts and one relief appearance.
