Today’s Mets Lineup vs. Diamondbacks

Here is the lineup the Mets will send to the plate against Diamondbacks pitcher Jason Marquis:

Angel Pagan – CF
Justin Turner – 2B
David Wright – 3B
Lucas Duda – 1B
Jason Bay – LF
Josh Thole – C
Jason Pridie – RF
Ruben Tejada – SS
Chris Capuano – P

Justin Turner returns to the lineup after getting a much-needed rest. Jason Pridie also returns to the lineup for reasons that are unclear at this time. I guess Mike Baxter is more valuable as pinch-hitter than he is playing a full nine innings.
