Speculation on who the 5th starter in the Mets rotation will be can come to an end.
Reports out of Port St. Lucie say that Brian Bannister
has won the competition and Aaron Heilman
will start the season in the bullpen. This has to sting Heilman who has publicly lobbied to move back into the rotation after spending last year in the pen. I have a feeling we’ll be seeing him start at some point this season though as teams rarely go a complete season with just the 5 starters. There’s always an injury and or trade along the way that opens the door for someone else to get a shot. That’s how David Cone and Rick Aguilera got their first Mets starts.
