Kelly Johnson will hit cleanup while Juan Uribe will sit out on Saturday night as the New York Mets play host to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Losing six of eight since returning from the 2015 MLB All-Star Game, another New York Mets starting pitcher finds himself in a very tough and familiar position. This rough situation is one that has all fans looking to one of their young talented starters to bail them out again.

On Saturday night it will be Matt Harvey’s turn.

After losing the first two of series, the Mets will throw out Harvey (8-7, 3.19 ERA) to oppose Zack Lee (just called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City).

The scheduled starter for the Los Angeles Dodgers last night, Zack Greinke, couldn’t pitch due to his wife giving birth of his first child. Instead, he’ll go for L.A. on Sunday, linking up against Jacob deGrom.

First pitch is at 7:10 on SNY.
