Player Notes
Mets manager Terry Collins said Saturday that he's deciding between Bartolo Colon, Zack Wheeler and Jacob deGrom for his Opening Day starter.

Advice: A report on Friday indicated that Colon was the favorite, but Collins isn't tipping his hand. "You’ve got a guy who won 15 games last year, one who pitched really well in the second half and the Rookie of the Year," Collins said. "We’ll have to see." The Mets will also feature Matt Harvey and Jon Niese in what should be a formidable rotation.

Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports that the Mets are "strongly considering" Bartolo Colon for their Opening Day start against the Nationals.

Advice: Rubin says the club has narrowed their choices to Colon and one other unnamed pitcher. The Mets have said that Matt Harvey (elbow) will start one of the first five games of the season, but it would be asking a lot to give him the ball on Opening Day in his first start in over 17 months. Reigning National League Rookie of the Year Jacob deGrom is another option, but the Mets are likely to keep his innings at least relatively in check. Colon, who will turn 42 in May, would be the oldest Opening Day starter in Mets history.
