The Mets are in a rain delay. The earliest they will start is 8:00pm, but I suspect an 8:15 or 8:30 start.

Tonight’s game is currently scheduled to start at 7:15 due to a rain delay, but the tarp is back out there and it might start later.


Updated at 6:12pm:

Jose Reyes was scratched from the lineup due to a stiff lower back. He was in the batting cage then left with the trainer. Ruben Tejada will replace Reyes at SS and will hit second in the lineup. Jesus Feliciano will hit lead off and still will play center field.
