Manager: Dusty Baker (second season)
Who's new? CF Adam Eaton, C Matt Wieters, 1B Adam Lind, LHP Enny Romero, RHP Joe Blanton
Who's gone? CF Ben Revere, C Wilson Ramos, RHP Lucas Giolito, RHP Mat Latos, LHP Sean Burnett, RHP Mark Melancon, LHP Marc Rzepczynski, RHP Yusmeiro Petit
Projected lineup: CF Adam Eaton (.284, 14 HR, 59 RBI, 14 SB with White Sox), SS Trea Turner (.342, 13, 40, 33), 2B Daniel Murphy (.347, 25, 104), RF Bryce Harper (.243, 24, 86, 21 SB), 3B Anthony Rendon (.270, 20, 85), LF Jayson Werth (.244, 21, 69), 1B Ryan Zimmerman (.218, 15, 46) or Adam Lind (.239, 20, 58 with Mariners), C Matt Wieters (.243, 17, 66 with Orioles)
Rotation: RH Max Scherzer (20-7, 2.96 ERA), RH Tanner Roark (16-10, 2.83), LH Gio Gonzalez (11-11, 4.57), RH Stephen Strasburg (15-4, 3.60), RH Joe Ross (7-5, 3.43)
Key relievers: RH Shawn Kelley (3-2, 2.64), RH Joe Blanton (7-2, 2.48), RH Blake Treinen (4-1, 2.28), LH Sammy Solis (2-4, 2.41), RH Trevor Gott (0-0, 1.50), LH Oliver Perez (2-3, 4.95), LH Enny Romero (2-0, 5.91 with Rays)
Hot spots: First base and closer. Zimmerman posted a career-low .642 OPS last season and was often spelled by left-handed hitter Clint Robinson. Now 32, Zimmerman must prove he's worthy of regular playing time. Robinson and free-agent pickup Lind are next in line. The ninth inning could be a committee job too, though it's never been the Nationals' preferred method. After Kenley Jansen spurned D.C. for less money in L.A., their choices were limited. Kelley and Blanton have never closed in a combined 20 seasons in the majors, but both were stalwart set-up men last season. Joe Nathan and his 377 career saves are also in camp on a minor-league deal.
Outlook: Trading former top prospect Lucas Giolito to the White Sox for Eaton signaled the Nationals' championship ambitions. Their five-game loss to the Dodgers last October marked the third time in five years they've fallen just short of the NLCS. Washington begins the season with some familiar weapons ' a dangerous heart of the lineup, an experienced bench and exceptional starting pitching. Eaton is a huge upgrade over Revere at the plate, but Wieters will be pressed to replace Ramos' 3.5 wins above replacement (via FanGraphs). Failing to sign a marquee closer could prove fatal if Kelley, Nathan or someone else can't hold down the ninth inning.
NY METS: 2016: 87-75, second place
Manager: Terry Collins (seventh season)
Who's new? No one of note
Who's gone? 1B James Loney, IF/OF Kelly Johnson, OF Alejandro De Aza, RHP Bartolo Colon, LHP Jonathon Niese
Projected lineup: CF Curtis Granderson (.237, 30 HR, 59 RBI), 3B David Wright (.226, 7, 14 in 37 games), LF Yoenis Cespedes (.280, 31, 86), RF Jay Bruce (.250, 33, 99 with Reds and Mets), 2B Neil Walker (.282, 23, 55), SS Asdrubal Cabrera (.280, 23, 62), 1B Lucas Duda (.229, 7, 23 in 47 games), C Travis d'Arnaud (.247, 4, 15)
Rotation: RH Noah Syndergaard (14-9, 2.60 ERA), RH Jacob deGrom (7-8, 3.04), RH Matt Harvey (4-10, 4.86), LH Steven Matz (9-8, 3.40), RH Zack Wheeler or RH Robert Gsellman (4-2, 2.42) or RH Seth Lugo (5-2, 2.67)
Key relievers: RH Jeurys Familia (3-4, 2.55, 51/56 SV), RH Addison Reed (4-2, 1.97), RH Hansel Robles (6-4, 3.48), LH Jerry Blevins (4-2, 2.79), RH Fernando Salas (3-7, 3.91)
Hot spots: First base and third base. Duda missed 115 games last season because of a stress fracture in his lower back. When healthy, the veteran first baseman slugged a career-low .714. Former first-round draft pick Dominic Smith, 21, could be in position to battle for the starting spot soon. He'll likely begin the season at Triple-A. Franchise third baseman Wright doesn't have a hot prospect pushing him out the door, but how much game does he have left? The perennial All-Star only began throwing a baseball in February after an eight-month recovery from neck surgery. Wright had a degenerative back and has only played 75 games the last two years. Getting a full season from him at age 34 would be a shock.
Outlook: The Mets' championship window opened with a surprise World Series run in 2015, and their front office seems convinced it's still open. The club invested four years and $110 million to keep Yoenis Cespedes in the outfield. The Mets also exercised club options on Jay Bruce and Jose Reyes, and brought Neil Walker back on a qualifying offer. The result? Almost everyone returns from a club that lost a wild-card game to the Giants last October. The franchise is oozing young pitching ' Syndergaard might be the best right-hander on the planet ' but another World Series appearance might be too much to expect from a team that ranked 25th in runs per game last season.
Mets' Syndergaard returns against Nationals

NEW YORK -- Six months ago, the concept of the New York Mets using both Noah Syndergaard and Matt Harvey in the same September game against the Washington Nationals would have conjured up thoughts of the Mets pulling out all the stops to win a pivotal late-season clash against their fiercest division rivals.

Instead, the sight of Syndergaard and Harvey "piggybacking" against the Nationals and Stephen Strasburg will serve as yet another reminder of how far off the rails the Mets' season has gone.

Syndergaard will make his first major league start in almost five months Saturday night, when the Mets host the National League East champion Nationals in the middle game of a three-game series at Citi Field.

The Mets won the opener Friday by coming back from a five-run deficit to earn a 7-6 victory.

Syndergaard (1-2, 3.29 ERA) will only pitch the first inning against Strasburg (14-4, 2.60 ERA), who is looking to win his fifth straight start. Harvey, whose first 99 big league appearances all came as a starter, will enter in the second inning.

The appearance Saturday will only be the third in an official game for Syndergaard since he was injured while giving up five runs in 1 1/3 innings against the Nationals on Apr. 30. The 24-year-old right-hander allowed three runs over three innings during a pair of rehab appearances for the rookie-level Gulf Coast League Mets and Class-A Brooklyn earlier this month. Syndergaard later threw a pair of bullpen sessions and a 39-pitch simulated game.

While the Mets (66-87) have been playing out the string for months, general manager Sandy Alderson said Friday pitching Syndergaard, even briefly in an otherwise meaningless game, could provide peace of mind for everyone involved heading into 2018.

"We just want to get him back on the mound, if for only a moment, relatively, before the season ends," Alderson said. "So that he's back out there, is re-familiarizing himself with the circumstances and the fact that he's in a big-league game and he goes into the offseason with a little bit of additional confidence."

Confidence is in increasingly short supply for Harvey, who took the loss Monday after giving up seven runs over four innings as the Mets fell to the Miami Marlins, 13-1. Harvey is 1-3 with a 13.19 ERA in four starts since he was activated from the disabled list Sept. 2, but Alderson and manager Terry Collins said Friday they've seen incremental signs of improvement from Harvey, whose fastball was clocked at 96 mph against the Marlins.

There's been no need for the Nationals (92-61) to dig for positive signs about Strasburg, who earned the win last Sunday after allowing one run over six innings as Washington beat the Los Angeles Dodgers, 7-1. The run he surrendered in the second inning snapped a franchise-record 35-inning scoreless streak for Strasburg, who has lowered his overall ERA from 3.10 to 2.60 over his last five starts.

"'Stras' was awesome," Nationals manager Dusty Baker told reporters following Sunday's game.

Syndergaard is 2-4 with a 3.60 ERA in nine career starts against the Nationals, whom he's faced more than any other opponent. Harvey is 3-6 with a 2.99 ERA in 14 career starts against the Nationals, whom he has also faced more than any other opponent. Strasburg is 8-4 with a 2.49 ERA in 15 career starts against the Mets.
