The New York Mets host the St. Louis Cardinals at Tradition Field in Port St. Lucie at 1:10 PM.

John Lannan gets the start against the Cards a day after Terry Collins admitted he’s likely headed to the bullpen as the team’s second left-hander alongside Scott Rice. Lannan opposes right-hander Carlos Martinez.

Daniel Murphy is in the lineup after missing time with an injured right shin he incurred during an aggressive slide into second base attempting to break up a double play. Lucas Duda could return to the lineup tomorrow, but the status on Ike Davis is still uncertain.

Here are today’s starting lineups:

  1. Eric Young Jr., DH
  2. Daniel Murphy, 2B
  3. David Wright, 3B

  5. Chris Young, LF
  6. Eric Campbell, 1B
  7. Taylor Teagarden, C
