Nationals-Mets lineups for Tuesday

VIERA, Fla. - Good morning (for the last time) from Space Coast Stadium, where the Nationals finish their Grapefruit League schedule at noon against the New York Mets. The rain in Viera has mostly subsided, so we shouldn’t have a problem getting this one in, I don’t think.

After today’s game, players will be in a mad scramble to finish their packing and get ready to fly north, where they’ll meet you all at tomorrow’s NatsFest before opening day on Thursday. It’s an exhausting, but exciting few days.

Here are the lineups for the Grapefruit League finale. The Nationals’ 25-man roster is set, and facing lefty Chris Capuano today, they’ll get to try the lineup they’ll use against left-handers to start the year:

Mets:
Reyes - SS
Pagan - CF
Wright - 3B
Beltran - RF
Bay - LF
Davis - 1B
Emaus - 2B
Thole - C
Capuano - P

Nationals:
