Starting lineups: Nats vs. Mets in West Palm Beach

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – It’s another beautiful day down here in paradise (sorry) as the Nationals return home to face the Mets for the first time this spring. The first two games have been highlighted by events that transpired after most of the starters departed. Perhaps today we’ll get a little more action from the regulars.

Davey Martinez has most of his everyday position players in the lineup. One notable exception: Brady House, who gets his first start at third base after coming off the bench Sunday against the Marlins. Jacob Young, who started in center field Sunday, is back in the lineup again today, this time in left field.

Josiah Gray takes the mound for the first time in 2024, and it’ll be interesting to see how many different types of pitches he throws during his two scheduled innings. Will Gray throw the kitchen sink at a Mets lineup he’s going to face plenty this season, or will he focus on a couple of particular offerings today?

Among the other pitchers scheduled to appear out of the bullpen are minor league starters Mitchell Parker and Cole Henry.
