A number of Mets headed west to Las Vegas on Friday for a two game series with the Chicago Cubs. The following is the complete roster of who made the trip to Sin City as announced by the team.

Pitchers: RHP Joel Carreno, Bartolo Colon, RHP Cory Mazzoni, Mejia, RHP Rafael Montero, RHP Bobby Parnell, RHP Ryan Reid, RHP Miguel Socolovich and RHP Carlos Torres

Catchers: Juan Centeno, Travis d’Arnaud and Kevin Plawecki.

Infielders: Wilmer Flores, Zach Lutz, Omar Quintanilla, Anthony Seratelli and David Wright.

Outfielders: Andrew Brown, Eric Campbell, Curtis Granderson, Juan Lagares, Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Eric Young

Field staff: manager Terry Collins, first-base coach Tom Goodwin, pitching coach Dan Warthen, bullpen catchers Dave Racaniello and Eric Langill, Triple-A Las Vegas manager Wally Backman and Vegas hitting coach George Greer.

Terry Collins would have preferred not split up his team and fly 2,000 miles for two games and told the NY Post that some of his stars would be in for a rude awakening once they see the stadium’s facilities.

“They will not be OK,” Collins said, comparing it to the major league weight rooms his players are used to. “It will get their attention. It’s fine. It’s Vegas. It’s in the desert, so the ball is going to be flying, especially if the wind is blowing.”

Bartolo Colon will start the game on Saturday at 4:10 PM EST, while Jenrry Mejia gets the nod on Sunday, same time. Today’s game in Vegas will be broadcast only on WGN.
