Harol Gonzalez will begin the Grapefruit league opener for the Mets on Monday versus the Marlins, while previous Marlin Jordan Yamamoto will get the ball for the group’s house opener versus the Astros on Tuesday, supervisor Luis Rojas revealed on Saturday.

Gonzalez, 25, was a non-roster guest to spring training this season. In 25 looks (23 starts) in between Double-A Binghamton and Triple-A Syracuse in 2019, the right-hander published a 12-4 record with a 3.01 PERIOD, starting out 112 players and strolling 33 over 137 2/3 innings.

The Mets traded for Yamamoto, 24, in February after he invested his very first 2 big-league seasons with the Marlins. In 19 profession looks (18 starts), the right-hander has a 4-6 record with a 6.20 PERIOD, along with 95 strikeouts and 43 strolls in 90 innings.

Tuesday’s video game is among 11 spring training video games that will air on either SNY or PIX11 this year. Very first pitch for Tuesday’s video game is set up for 1:10 p.m., with protection on SNY starting at 1 p.m.
