Mets Reports, Tests and Shocks.

Callaways's real test is Thursday

NY DAILY NEWS

"There's gonna be unforeseen things that I have never dealt with before along the way. And that's why we hired the coaching staff that we hired," Callaway said at the beginning of spring training. "They're going to have me prepared. I'm gonna ask questions, I'm gonna lean on them on a daily basis."

"I was able to sit next to our coaches. We had discussion after discussion about this situation that situation and I feel prepared going in," Callaway said. "I am really excited about Opening Day. The season as far getting guys ready and stuff like that, making changes is going to be a lot easier than spring training, because you are taking everybody out every game, essentially at some point (in spring games). So that was kind of crazy in itself, just doing that. But we stayed nice and locked in on the things, situations we needed to be thinking about during the game, so it was fun."

STARTERS

Noah Syndergaard 1-2, 2.97 ERA, 30.1 IP, 34 SO, 3 BB
“If he keeps pitching the way I’ve seen him pitch in his three starts, he should win every award; MVP, Cy Young, everything. All he has to do is stay healthy and maintain what he’s doing.” — AL scout
Jacob deGrom
15-10, 3.53 ERA, 201.1 IP, 239 SO, 59 BB
“All he does is go out and compete. He’s got nasty stuff, his delivery is so long and low, it makes it hard on hitters to pick it up. He looked like he is already in midseason form. He’s the guy I’d want in a big game.” — AL scout
Matt Harvey 5-7, 6.70 ERA, 92.2 IP, 67 SO, 47 BB

“By far the best I have seen him in the last three years. He may not have the same stuff he did when he was coming up, but he looks good. That changeup is his best pitch and it’s coming back, the slider is coming back to him. He looks good and his stuff still plays.” — NL scout

Steven Matz 2-7, 6.08 ERA, 66.2 IP, 48 SO, 19 BB

Seth Lugo 7-5, 4.71 ERA, 101.1 IP, 85 SO, 25 BB

CLOSER

Jeurys Familia 2-2, 4.38 ERA, 24.2 IP, 6 S, 1 BS
“Best he’s looked in a while. He’s sitting 95-96, the sink was back on his ball, he’s thrown a couple of (splitters), which he won’t have to throw for strikes when he’s 0-2, 1-2 and the slider is coming. He looks better than he did last year.” — AL scout
