Vince Velasquez (0-0) 0.00 ERA

PHILLIES: Phillies fans will be interested to see what Velasquez does in his Phillies debut. He was considered the key piece in the Ken Giles trade with Houston in December. The hard-throwing right-hander had a strong spring.

Bartolo Colon (0-0) 0.00 ERA

METS: Colon’s season debut came in relief on Opening Night, when he recorded four outs but allowed an inherited run to score. He will join the rotation Saturday, staying there at least until Zack Wheeler returns from the disabled list around July 1.
