Monday, May 27 at Citi Field | 7:10 PM ET
Phil Hughes, RHP (2-3, 5.51 ERA)
Jon Niese, LHP (3-5, 4.80 ERA)
YANKEES: Hughes is coming off a quality start and is trying to forget his struggles this month that included a seven-run disaster on May 15 vs. Seattle. He's 2-1 with a 3.80 ERA in five career games (three starts) vs. the Mets.
METS: Against the Reds, Niese threw 48 pitches in the first inning and allowed three runs, but they were all unearned. He's given up only two earned runs in his past 13 1/3 innings.
Tuesday, May 28 at Citi Field | 7:10 PM ET
Hiroki Kuroda, RHP (6-3, 2.67 ERA)
Matt Harvey, RHP (5-0, 1.93 ERA)
YANKEES: Kuroda's right calf was smoked by a Manny Machado liner on May 22, knocking him out in the third inning, but he expects to make this start. He is 2-5 with a 4.81 ERA in eight career starts vs. the Mets.
METS: Harvey is coming off his roughest outing of the season. The Reds scored four runs on nine hits off him, the most any team has had against Harvey all year. Two of those runs came in the seventh.
Wednesday, May 29 at Yankee Stadium | 7:05 PM ET
Jeremy Hefner, RHP (0-5, 4.76 ERA)
David Phelps, RHP (3-2, 3.96 ERA)
METS: Hefner is still searching for his first win of the season. He pitched well enough for a win in his last start against the Braves, giving up two runs on three hits in six innings. He also had seven strikeouts.
YANKEES: Phelps pitched a career-high 7 2/3 innings on May 24 at Tampa Bay before a liner struck his pitching arm. He suffered just a bruise and should be ready for this outing. He's 2-1 with a 3.27 ERA in five starts this year.
Thursday, May 30 at Yankee Stadium | 7:05 PM ET
Dillon Gee, RHP (2-6, 6.34 ERA)
Vidal Nuno, LHP (1-1, 1.93 ERA)
METS: Gee has gone five straight starts without notching an out past the fifth inning, and he's allowed at least four earned runs in six of his 10 starts this season.
YANKEES: Nuno was effective again in his second big league start, holding the Rays to two runs and five hits over six innings. The finesse lefty is 1-0 with a 1.64 ERA in 11 innings as a starter.
