The Mets have reportedly set their World Series rotation.

When the World Series begins next week, the Mets will use Jacob deGrom in Game 1, Noah Syndergaard in Game 2, Matt Harvey in Game 3, and Steven Matz in Game 4, according to ESPN's Buster Olney.

If that is accurate, it would mean that deGrom and Syndergaard would begin the series on the road. Harvey and Matz would pitch at home. Should the series continue past that, the big three would be pitching on regular rest. A potential Game 7 start would go to Matt Harvey, and it's possible that deGrom would be able in relief for that game, if needed.

The rotation would also give the Mets starters a lot of rest. deGrom, who started Game 3 of the NLCS, would have six days of rest. Syndergaard, Harvey, and Matz would have even more than that before they make their first starts in the World Series. The Mets don't know their opponent yet, as the ALCS has is still not over, with the Royals up 3-2 on the Blue Jays heading into Game 6 tonight.
