KEY GAME INFORMATION
NY METS: 2017 70-92, fourth place
MANAGER Mickey Callaway (first season)
ADDITIONS: 3B Todd Frazier, RF Jay Bruce, LHP Jason Vargas, 1B Adrian Gonzalez, RHP Anthony Swarzak, LHP Matt Purke, C Jose Lobaton
SUBTRACTIONS: Manager Terry Collins, LHP Josh Smoker, LHP Josh Edgin, RHP Chasen Bradford, OF Norichika Aoki, RHP Erik Goeddel, RHP Tyler Pill, LHP Tommy Milone, OF Travis Taijeron
OUTLOOK: Callaway had great success with Cleveland's arms, and the injury-plagued Mets are counting on his methods, along with new pitching coach Dave Eiland, to keep their talented but fragile rotation intact. New York also overhauled its medical department, hoping to keep star players on the field. Syndergaard and deGrom make for an imposing 1-2 punch. So if Harvey, Matz and Zack Wheeler -- even one or two of them -- can finally stay healthy and approach their initial big league form, the pitching staff could be terrific again after unraveling last year with a 5.01 ERA that ranked 28th in the majors. Vargas was signed to eat innings but will miss some time at the beginning of the season after surgery for a broken right (nonpitching) hand. All-Star outfielder Michael Conforto (27 HRs, .384 OBP, .939 OPS) is targeting a May 1 return from surgery for a dislocated left shoulder. His status is critical to a lineup that lacks speed and a natural leadoff hitter. Nimmo made strides last season and is a potential candidate for that role while platooning early with Juan Lagares to fill Conforto's spot in center field. After the Mets spent nearly $90 million to plug holes in free agency, it still might be a stretch to envision them seriously challenging star-studded Washington for NL East supremacy. But with better health in a soft division, they could certainly rejoin the wild-card hunt.
PHILADELPHIA: 2017 66-96, fifth place
MANAGER Gabe Kapler (first season)
ADDITIONS: RHP Jake Arrieta, 1B Carlos Santana, RHP Pat Neshek, RHP Tommy Hunter
SUBTRACTIONS: Manager Pete Mackanin, SS Freddy Galvis, INF Andres Blanco, OF Daniel Nava, OF Hyun Soo Kim, RHP Clay Buchholz, 1B Tommy Joseph
OUTLOOK: The decision to sign Arrieta signals the rebuild is over. The Phillies added Santana, Neshek and Hunter to a talented young roster in hopes of being competitive. A month into spring training, they added Arrieta because management thinks it's time to contend. The lineup has the potential to be dynamic if the young hitters continue to emerge and Santana does what he did in Cleveland. The bullpen should be formidable with Hunter-Neshek-Neris at the back end. If Arrieta regains his old form, Nola lives up to his promise and a couple of other starters take steps forward, the Phillies cannot only end their five-year run of losing seasons but maybe even make a surprise push for a postseason berth.
PREVIEW
Phillies, Mets wrap up series in MLB Little League Classic
 

The Philadelphia Phillies and New York Mets will meet in the 2018 MLB Little League Classic on Sunday night at Bowman Field in Williamsport, Pa.

It's the second year Major League Baseball and Little League have teamed up to put on the event, and players from the Little League World Series will be in attendance and have the chance to meet big leaguers.

The Pittsburgh Pirates beat the St. Louis Cardinals in the initial Little League Classic last season.

"(The 2017) MLB Little League Classic was one of the most historic, memorable occasions in the 70-plus-year history of the Little League Baseball World Series," Little League president and CEO Stephen D. Keener said of last year's game.

Nick Pivetta (7-9, 4.37 ERA) of the Phillies and Jason Vargas (2-8, 8.10) of the Mets will be on the mound in a game sure to bring back some memories for the players.

"I watched (the Little League World Series) as a kid every year, dreaming of being in it, just thinking how cool it would be to even be on TV, not even really knowing the magnitude of it," Phillies outfielder Rhys Hoskins, who grew up in Sacramento, Calif., told MLB.com.

" ... It's kind of refreshing to go back and see the pure joy on these kids' faces, knowing they're just playing a game and are out there to have as much fun as they can."

The teams are wrapping up a five-game series that started with a Thursday doubleheader in Philadelphia.

The Phillies and Mets have each won two of the first four games in the series. The Mets, who won the series opener 24-4, took Saturday's game 3-1 thanks to a complete-game, one-run effort from Jacob deGrom.

Pivetta, who has 153 strikeouts this season, has not won since July 12. But he has been great in August. In three starts this month, Pivetta has a 1.50 ERA, opponents are hitting .194 against him, and he has 19 strikeouts to two walks.

In Pivetta's last start, he allowed one run and three hits in six innings against the Boston Red Sox, who have the best offense in baseball.

Pivetta, 25, has not faced the Mets this year, but he pitched four games against them in 2017, his first major league season. He went 2-1 with a 4.98 ERA in those outings.

Vargas, meanwhile, is coming off the longest of his 13 starts this season. He went six innings against the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday, giving up two runs and five hits. Vargas has pitched five innings or fewer in all his other starts this season, and the Mets are 2-11 when he pitches.

The 35-year-old left-hander will make his fifth career appearance (third start) against the Phillies. Vargas is 1-0 with a 4.02 ERA and 1.34 WHIP against Philadelphia.

Asdrubal Cabrera, who was traded by the Mets to the Phillies on July 27, is 7-for-16 with a solo home run and double versus Vargas. Cabrera (.269, 20 home runs, 66 RBIs) is batting .221 in 19 games with Philadelphia.
