Series Preview: Washington Nationals (39-39) @ New York Mets (32-43)

Mike Stobe

Coming off of a series win, and disappointing loss yesterday the Washington Nationals get to face the New York Mets for three games at Citi Field. The Nationals, who are expected to be without Bryce Harper until Monday pending any setbacks, would have liked his help as they have to face young fireballers Zack Wheeler and Matt Harvey sandwiching Nationals killer Dillon Gee.

The New York Mets are a different team than they were a few weeks ago, and so are the Washington Nationals with something that resembles a Major League lineup with Jayson Werth back from injury and Anthony Rendon recalled from Triple A. The only missing piece is Bryce Harper and his arrival might be the kick in the rear the Nats need as they are treading water with the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves.

HITTER TO WATCH

Eric Young
Since coming to the Mets from Colorado has had a bunch of success. In the last seven days he has a .462/.500/.615 line (12/26 with 4 2B and 6 RBI). Young is getting a chance to rebuild his career at the Major League level, and while it's safe to assume he is is due for some regression, it is worth keeping an eye on him and whether he can cement his place at the Major League level.

PITCHER TO WATCH

Zack Wheeler
It will be interesting to see how Wheeler responds from his last outing where his team confirmed that he was tipping his pitches. This will be the Nationals first look at the top prospect, who along with Harvey should be thorns on the sides of the Nationals and the rest of the NL East. Harvey succeeded in his debut against the Nationals back in April, it will be interesting to see how Wheeler does in the first look most Nats fans get at him.
