Here are the lineups as the Mets face Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers at Citi Field at 7:10 p.m.

Juan Lagares is active, but not starting. He flew overnight from Colorado Springs to New York, landing at 9 a.m. Lagares said he is comfortable in all three outfield positions, but center field is his best spot. He will wear No. 12.

Lagares said he was in disbelief when Triple-A manager Wally Backman informed him about the promotion.

"Major surprise," Lagares said. "I couldn't believe it. Wally called me last night. I thought he was just playing with me. I said, 'Hey, are you serious?'"
