Atlanta Braves set 25-man roster for opening day

Because even though Colon officially is an Atlanta Brave now, he was as much a part of Mets lore as any player lining up across from the home dugout.

Mets right-hander Noah Syndergaard will be making the start on Monday.

We've got some key players returning for the Mets in 2017.

The hard-throwing ace pitched six sharp innings before leaving with a blister, Asdrubal Cabrera singled home the go-ahead run in the seventh and the Mets broke through following a pivotal replay reversal to beat the Atlanta Braves 6-0 in their season opener Monday.

"I do believe guys who are in 'walk years, ' guys who have a chance to become free agents, it's always awesome what they do that last year as they get ready", NY manager Terry Collins said. According to, Syndergaard developed a blister on the middle finger of his pitching hand during the second inning of Monday's game. But both teams have not finished above.500 and within 10 games of the division lead in the same season since 2007, when NY (one game behind the NL East-winning Philadelphia Phillies ) and Atlanta (five games back) finished second and third, respectively. Therefore it wasn't a necessity to risk further damage with 161 more games to go in the season. With one of the better arms in Mauricio Cabrera beginning the season on the DL, the Braves certainly have lots of question marks going forward.

Dans. Just kind of came about one day and stuck on.

Syndergaard was initially slated to start Saturday against the Marlins in NY, but Collins said the team will push him back a day and use fifth starter Robert Gsellman on Saturday in Syndergaard's place. Fifth starter Robert Gsellman, who tossed a scoreless ninth, will start Saturday. "I'm really not too concerned about it". LHP Jacob Lindgren (recovering from left elbow "Tommy John" surgery) and INF Sean Rodriguez (recovering from left shoulder surgery) were placed on the 60-day disabled list on February 14th and February 25th, respectively.

Tell me which team you think should be favored? "Personally, I didn't know where this program could go", Gamecocks sophomore P.J. The Tar Heels led by seven with 54 seconds left, but Fox and Monk hit consecutive 3-pointers to cut the deficit to one.

Braves: Snitker said injured reliever Mauricio Cabrera (elbow), who features a fastball clocked at over 100 miles per hour, should begin throwing soon. If they can't find capable arms to bridge the gap to the setup relievers and closer at the end, the Braves will continue to struggle to win games and that could add strain to the rotation asking them to go deeper into games. "We have the talent, and with half the team going to be free agents, we have to say, 'Let's do it now'". "We've got to make sure we keep these five guys healthy".

"Yeah, it's going to be a couple of weeks, for sure".

Lugo appeared nervous when he briefly talked to reporters on his way out of the locker room. He will seek a second opinion on the injury. He's walked three and struck out six while allowing only four hits. "He'll need to build back, but you know, he won't have been off that long". "It's just a shame that Julio threw the ball so well and didn't get anything for it".

Noah Syndergaard was dominating the Braves today, allowing no runs on five hits with no walks and seven strikeouts.

Yes, in that sense it was an Opening Day for Mets' fans to dream about grand possibilities.

Opening Day is one of the best days of the year for big baseball fans. With only one out, this seemed like a golden opportunity for either Matt Kemp or Nick Markakis to bring in Freeman for the first run of the day.
