The Mets visit the Braves this afternoon at 12:00 pm. The game will not be broadcast locally.

With the season beginning on Thursday against the division rivals from Atlanta, the Mets aren't bringing many players from their Opeing Day roster for the game. They're also going with a bullpen day rather than using a starting pitcher.

The Mets' lineup:

Ruben Tejada - SS
Josh Thole - C
Justin Turner - 1B
Lucas Duda - RF
Vinny Rottino - LF
Ronny Cedeno - 3B
Mike Baxter - CF
Wilfredo Tovar - 2B
Bobby Parnell - P
