Game 1: Bartolo Colon, RHP vs Cody Anderson, RHP
Bartolo Colon started his career in Cleveland 20 years ago so he will be pitching on familiar territory for the Mets in the series opener.
Colon made his first 2016 start last Saturday against the Phillies. He lost, but pitched really well, giving up only one run in six innings, showing that the soon to be 43-year old is still efficient at times on the mound.
He will go up against Cody Anderson who is 0-2 with a 3.00 ERA to start 2016.
Game 2: Matt Harvey, RHP vs Josh Tomlin, RHP
Harvey is looking to right his ship in Ohio after two disappointing starts to begin this year. he lost both games and didn’t pitch past the sixth inning in neither of those two starts.
He will go up against Josh Tomlin who will be making his first 2016 regular season start.
Game 3: Steven Matz, LHP vs Corey Kluber RHP
Steven Matz will look to bounce back in a huge way after getting shelled by the Marlins on Monday night, giving seven runs (all in the second inning) in 1.2 innings.
He will go up against Indians ace Corey Kluber who won the AL Cy Young award back in 2014. However like Harvey, Kluber has had a slow start to 2016, going 0-2 with a 4.85 ERA so far.
