Washington turned out to be a major disaster last season and they have not made any progress in terms of signing top players. The Nationals gave away Juan Soto to the Padres and they seem to be missing out on key players from the plate. From the pitching end, the Nationals still seem to be unbalanced. C. Cavalli will be delivered to the mound as their starter in this game. The Nationals are coming off a 7-6 victory against the Houston Astros.

New York Mets
The New York Mets have been doing their best this preseason and they are coming off a 9-3 victory against the Miami Marlins.
