Harol Gonzalez Gets Opener, Yamamoto pitches first game in Clover Park.

The Mets have announced that Harol Gonzalez will pitch the opener of the Spring Training Schedule. The Mets will face the Marlins on March first. A game that won’t be televised.

The 25 year old Gonzalez has pitched 6 seasons with the Mets organization. Over his minor league career he has been solid owning a 3.60 ERA over 607 innings pitched. Over that span he hasn’t been a strikeout guy, so he relies on good defense behind him. However, he does limit hits and is coming off a great 2019.

In 2019 Gonzalez pitched to a combined 3.01 ERA over 137.2 innings between AA and AAA. In Syracuse he was very good with a 2.68 ERA in 40.1 innings.

On Tuesday we can watch the game on SNY, with Yordan Yamamoto taking on the Astros. The spin rate king is looking to make a big impression after the Mets traded for the 24 year old righty.
