Meet the Mets
Bartolo Colon earned a quality start, but New York's offense was stymied by Cardinals right-hander Carlos Martinez on Monday in Jupiter. Matt Holliday went 2-for-2 with a home run to send the Mets to a 3-1 defeat.
Asdrubal Cabrera went 0-for-3 while batting second, but more importantly, he said his knee felt good in his return to the lineup.
Following the loss, the Mets announced that Matt Harvey would be skipping his final Grapefruit League start due to a non-baseball medical issue. The ailment is also putting Harvey's Opening Day appearance into question.
If the Mets need to replace Harvey this Sunday, it's worth nothing that Jacob deGrom's child is not due to be born until a week from today.
