Left-hander Kolby Allard will make his second start of the spring for Atlanta while veteran righty Carlos Carrasco will get the start for the Mets.

Allard started the spring opener for Atlanta where he allowed three hits and one run over two innings of work. The Braves will roll out a lineup Thursday filled with mostly reserves and roster hopefuls with the exception of shortstop Vaughn Grissom who will hit second. Grissom is coming off of a three-hit game and is 4-for-7 at the plate this spring. Eli White will get the start in center field and hit fifth. White is 2-for-5 with a double and a three walks so far this spring.

For the Mets, Carrasco will be making his first appearance of the spring. Tommy Pham will lead off and get the start in center. Jeff McNeil, Francisco Lindor, Pete Alonso and Eduardo Escobar are all in the lineup along with prospect Mark Vientos who will play first base and seventh.
