Kendrick Looks For Strong Start Against Depleted Mets


Kyle Kendrick meets Jon Niese tonight in Game 2 of the 4 game series in Citi Field. Kendrick has been mediocre lately and looks to get back on track against a depleted Mets line up that just traded Marlon Byrd and John Buck earlier today. A link worth checking out comes from sabermetrics blog Beyond the Box Score and Kendrick's elite status in the Well Hit Average (WHAV) category.

Kevin Frandsen is in at first for Michael Young who is playing third for Cody Asche who sits against lefty Niese tonight. Erik Kratz catches tonight and bats clean up.
