The Mets today announced the starting rotation to start off the season. At the top, after nearly 19 months of rehab and recovery is Johan Santana. It was expected that he would be ready for Opening Day and that he would start, but this is a symbolic move for Terry Collins and the Mets.
Following Santana, the rotation will go: R.A. Dickey, Jon Niese, Mike Pelfrey, and Dillon Gee in that order.
It’s great to have our ace back.
