The 18-13 New York Mets will play a two-game set against the Tampa Bay Rays to kick off the series down in Florida.
The Mets plan to send left-hander David Peterson to the bump, making his seventh appearance of the campaign. The Colorado native is 1-3 with a 5.54 ERA with 32 K’s in 26.0 innings pitched.
Peterson picked up the “No-Decision” in his last outing against the Diamondbacks on the 7th of May. He only pitched 1.2 innings while having surrendered three runs on three hits, as well as walking three.
