The New York Mets (2-5-1) head to Lakeland, Florida to take on the Detroit Tigers (5-4) at 1:00 PM this afternoon.

Noah Syndergaard will make his second spring start for the Mets and oppose lefthander Drew Smyly for the Tigers.

Also scheduled to pitch in the game are Jacob deGrom, Gonzalez Germen and Jeff Walters.

Here are today’s starting lineups:


Eric Young, 2B
Juan Lagares, CF
Kirk Nieuwenhuis, RF

Eric Young makes his first start at second base for the Mets in Grapefruit League play. One day after playing their first games of the Spring, David Wright and Daniel Murphy are both out of the lineup and resting.

Neither Ike Davis or Lucas Duda are ready to play yet and remain sidelined. Ruben Tejada is also not in today’s lineup.

Wilmer Flores shifts over to third base and still hasn’t started a game at shortstop this spring as Terry Collins continues to give Omar Quintanilla an extended look at short.

The game will not be televised or broadcast on the radio, but you can follow along on MLB Gameday Live or if you are an MLB subscriber you can listen to the Tigers audio feed here.
