Game Thread: Phillies at Mets 4/8/16

12-6 takes the mound today to hopefully ruin the Mets' home opener and get us our first W of the year.

1:10PM EDT on MLB.TV, CSN and MLB Network

Jerad Eickhoff (0-0) 0.00 ERA

PHILLIES: Eickhoff hopes to build on an impressive eight starts late last season. Acquired as part of the Cole Hamels trade, his aggressive mound presence has the Phillies' coaching staff excited about his potential.

Jacob deGrom (0-0) 0.00 ERA

METS: Expecting his first child, deGrom is remaining with the Mets as he prepares to start Friday's home opener, with the expectation that he will head to Florida at a moment's notice to join his wife if the baby arrives.
