The New York Mets travel to Lakeland, FL to take on the Detroit Tigers on Sunday afternoon. LHP Adam Wilk gets the start for the Mets and he will be opposed by reigning Rookie of the Year RHP Michael Fulmer. First Pitch is at 1:05 PM.

Also expected to pitch for the Mets today are RHP Rafael Montero, LHP Josh Edgin, RHP Logan Taylor, and RHP Paul Sewald.

Catcher Kevin Plawecki is making his first Grapefruit League appearance since sustaining a badly bruised left knee over two weeks ago. He’s batting fifth as the team’s DH this afternoon.

Unfortunately, today’s game will not be broadcast on SNY, PIX or WOR. So GameDay it is.
