The Mets’ Tuesday night game against the Braves has been rained out. It will be made up on September 25 as part of a single-admission double header beginning at 4:10 PM.
The Mets planned on sending Robert Gsellman out to start against Julio Teheran for the Braves, but they will now skip Gsellman’s spot in the rotation and use him out of the bullpen this week. Teheran is still in line to start Wednesday against Noah Syndergaard. Matt Harvey will also still take his turn in the rotation on Thursday, but he will now face R.A. Dickey as opposed to Bartolo Colon, who won’t be pitching in this series now.
The rainout gives the Mets another day to rest their ailing players. Yoenis Cespedes and Travis d’Arnaud were both scheduled to be in the lineup Tuesday night after they both missed the last few games, but they may have not been 100 percent healthy yet. The extra day off could offer them some more rest to heal up some more before getting back on the field.
The team announced that any fans who had a ticket to Tuesday night’s game can exchange their unused ticket for a comparable ticket in price and seat location to a future Mets home game this season.
