Tommy Hanson, Jair Jurrjens and Mike Minor (l to r) unofficially are expected to face the Mets in the opening series, at Citi Field.
The Atlanta Braves have not yet announced their regular-season rotation, but David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution said it's lining up as Tommy Hanson on Opening Day, followed by Jair Jurrjens in Game 2 and Mike Minor in the series finale. If that holds true, the opening series matchups would be:

April 5: Johan Santana-Hanson
April 7: R.A. Dickey-Jurrjens
April 8: Jon Niese-Minor
