Tuesday's Mets-Royals lineups

NEW YORK -- Here are the lineups for Tuesday's 7:10 p.m. ET series opener between the New York Mets and Kansas City Royals at Citi Field.

The Mets originally listed Noah Syndergaard as the starter, but he will be pushed back a day to Wednesday. That will allow Syndergaard to pitch the series opener against the Washington Nationals in D.C. on Monday, rather than the series finale in Atlanta the previous day.

Travis d'Arnaud bats eighth in his return from the disabled list.
