Zack Wheeler (2-6, 4.19) starts for the Mets, hoping to rebound from a terrible start in San Francisco. Wheeler lasted just 3 2/3 innings against his former organization, allowing four runs on six hits and two walks.

Recently recalled from AA San Antonio, Jesse Hahn (0-1, 9.82) will make just his second career MLB start for San Diego on Saturday. He got roughed up in his debut on June 3, lasting just 3 2/3 innings while allowing four runs on six hits in a 4-1 loss to Pittsburgh.

Pre-Game Notes

  • Bobby Abreu will start in right field and bat cleanup Saturday, after leading the Mets to a 6-2 win on Friday. Abreu went 4-for-4 with two RBI and two runs scored, raising his average to .319 on the season.
  • Jenrry Mejia (lower back stiffness) will likely avoid a trip to the DL, but won't be available to pitch this weekend, accoring to manager Terry Collins.
