The entire National League East is struggling mightily as the season heads into the summer. Despite the hot start from the New York Mets, the resurgence of the Washington Nationals, and the surprising early April from the Atlanta Braves, all three teams are hovering around the .500 mark.

Tonight, the Mets will reconvene with the Braves as they being a three-game series at Citi Field.

The Mets rotation for this weekend will feature Bartolo Colon, Jacob deGrom, and Noah Syndergaard.
