Here’s the visitor lineup, in annoying video tweet format:
While the majority of the Mets’ lineup has faced Newcomb before given that he made three starts against New York last season, the sample sizes are small throughout. Asdrubal Cabrera leads his team with nine at-bats against Newcomb, in which he’s garnered five hits. Wilmer Flores, known lefty-killer, is 2-for-3 against the southpaw.
Here’s how the Braves line up tonight against Noah Syndergaard: it’s the usual.
Of this lineup, only Freeman, Markakis, Inciarte, and Swanson have faced Thor. Freeman has a homer to his credit off Syndergaard; Markakis and Swanson have also collected a few hits in a few plate appearances off of the righty.
