Tuesday lineup: Q era begins in Queens

By Adam Rubin

Newly promoted Omar Quintanilla makes his first appearance as a Met as the Mets start their fifth shortstop of this season. The 30-year-old Quintanilla's last major league game came Aug. 25, 2011, for Texas against Boston, at third base.

Jeremy Hefner opposes right-hander Joe Blanton in Tuesday's game. Miguel Batista makes a rehab start tonight for Double-A Binghamton at Reading and is eligible to return from the disabled list the same day as Hefner's next turn, so Hefner needs to produce against the Phillies.
