The New York Mets are scheduled to kick off their 2021 season Monday night against the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. Superstar shortstop Francisco Lindor, who just signed a 10-year contract extension, will make his regular-season debut for the Mets, who saw their first series of the season canceled due to COVID-19. New York was originally scheduled to play a three-game game against the Nationals over the weekend, but four positive COVID tests among Washington players prompted the postponement.

Cy Young, prospect Jacob deGrom, will be on the mound for the Mets, while the Phillies look to build on a season-opening sweep for the Braves. Here’s information for Monday night’s game, including information on the live stream and how to watch.

Scenarios

Food: All eyes will be on Lindor in his delayed Mets debut. Acquired from Cleveland via trade in January, Lindor signed a $ 341 million contract extension on Wednesday night (originally at the 11th hour before its opening day deadline). Lindor joins wide receiver James McCann in a reworked Mets roster under second-year manager Luis Rojas. DeGrom, meanwhile, entered the season as a Cy Young Award favorite in the National League. He won the award in 2018 and 2019 and notched a 2.38 ERA (183 ERA +) and 104 strikeouts in 68 innings in the shortened 2020 season.

Philly: The Phillies swept the defending NL East Champions Braves over the weekend at Citizens Bank Park and are perfectly 3-0 in Monday’s game. Only two other teams – the Astros and the Orioles – have won every game they have played so far this season. The pitch was the main reason for Atlanta’s sweep as the Phillies allowed just three runs in three games against an Atlanta offense that was one of baseball’s best last season. And the Philadelphia relievers pitched 7 1/3 innings scoreless against the Braves after the team had a historically bad reliever box in 2020. Moore, who pitched in Japan last season, will make his Phillies debut. The 31-year-old southpaw last pitched in MLB in 2019.
