The Mets had a scare when Syndergaard complained of elbow soreness following his last start against the Royals. But an MRI was clean and Syndergaard began taking anti-inflammatories. He will look to move to 2-0 against the Nationals this year.

Harvey remains an enigma, flashing his old mid-90s velocity but laboring through outings. He’ll face a severe test in Washington against a Nationals club that nearly knocked him out of the rotation with 14 runs over consecutive starts last month.

Run support, not performance, has been deGrom’s issue. The Mets have gone 21 consecutive innings without scoring a run while deGrom has been in the game, and have plated a total of two for him over his last 35 innings. He has not won since April 30.

Colon has only faced the Cubs once since joining the Mets, blanking them over seven innings of a game last July. But watch out for new Cubs hitters Ben Zobrist and Jason Heyward, who are a combined 15-for-31 off Colon with five home runs.
