Syndergaard, Cabrera lead Mets past Braves 6-0 in opener

Syndergaard, Cabrera lead Mets past Braves 6-0 in opener

But if the blister requires some extra time to heal, the Mets could feasibly have their No. 5 starter, Robert Gsellman, go in that spot.

On Monday morning, a promising young starting pitcher for the New York Mets revealed he was injured more seriously than first believed. But once he was lifted after 96 pitches, NY took advantage of five walks by a shaky Braves bullpen in a six-run bottom of the seventh that lasted 35 minutes.

He gave up a one-out triple to Freddie Freeman in the fourth inning, before striking out Matt Kemp and Nick Markakis to end the threat.

If the Braves are going to start out the season on the right foot they are going to have to take advantage of any mistakes that Gaard does make and stay close until getting into the Mets bullpen. Still, manager Terry Collins said the right-hander's next turn will be pushed back a day to Sunday. Despite a last-place finish in the NL East a year ago, the Braves have won six straight games at Citi Field — sweeping their final two series there in 2016. He picked it up in the second inning, then it opened in the fifth, and he battled through the sixth before leaving the game. He induced an unlikely 1-3-6 double play to end the game and secure the 6-0 victory for the Mets. A moment of silence was held prior to the game in honor of four recently deceased baseball figures: Former National League executive Katy Feeney, former Mets pitcher and manager Dallas Green, former Mets scout Harry Minor and Bill Webb, who directed Mets broadcasts on SNY. He signed a $12.5 million, one-year contract with Atlanta in November. "Bartolo had a huge effect on this team".

Derrick Rose to have knee surgery, miss rest of season
The Knicks are 29-48 after Sunday's 110-94 loss to the Boston Celtics and will miss the playoffs for the fourth straight season. The recovery period for his latest injury is estimated at six to eight weeks , per Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical .

In fanning seven without a walk, he joined Jerry Koosman as the only two Mets to do that on Opening Day.

"It feels like an older brother to me, kind of". Cabrera is on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to March 30, with a right elbow strain. "Our goal is going to be to win the division, and I don't see why it should be anything other than that", Snitker said.

Mets: In their comments to reporters, RHP Seth Lugo seemed optimistic about a fairly quick return from the DL, while it appears LHP Steven Matz will be sidelined for some time. He was in uniform for pregame introductions and was given a warm hand.
