The New York Mets are heading into their second game of spring training on Sunday against the Houston Astros at 1:10 pm today. The second lineup is out and it is a little unusual just like yesterday's was to kick off the Grapefruit League action.

Mets starting lineup vs. the Astros

Here's the lineup card Carlos Mendoza has turned in:

1) Tyrone Taylor, CF

2) Francisco Alvarez, C

3) Ji-Man Choi, 1B

4) Mark Vientos, 3B

5) Luke Voit, DH

6) Ben Gamel, LF

7) Zach Short, SS

8) Yolmer Sanchez, 2B

9) Alex Ramirez, RF

On the bump for the Mets will be Jose Butto. After the news broke about Kodai Senga, Butto's name was a part of the conversation to make the Opening Day roster and get some time in the big rotation. Obviously, the other two main candidates were Tylor Megill, who got the start yesterday, and Joey Lucchesi.

The Mets only have two regulars set to take the field today. Alvarez will be behind the plate and Vientos will get the start at 3rd base. While Alvarez is a lock as the Mets everyday catcher, Vientos is still fighting to be the Mets everyday third baseman. Other than these two players, the rest of today's cast interesting to say the least.

Luke Voit and Ji-Man Choi are going to see some action today. Both were picked via minor league deals by the Mets this offseason. In fact, this is Voit's second go around with the club as he is looking to find a permanent spot on an MLB roster.

One of the players who should get some attention throughout today's game is Alex Ramirez who will man RF. He did not have the best season last year in the minors for the Mets. However, he is looking to prove himself and could be available should the Mets need him at some this year.

Tyrone Taylor will lead off today's bout, looking to show off his outstanding defensive abilities. He came over in a trade with the Milwaukee Brewers along with Adrian Houser and he should be a another valuably asset for the Mets to use this year.

Baseball continues. Don't take this game too seriously and enjoy spring trainging.
