The Dodgers welcome the Mets to town for a three-game series beginning Friday night at Dodger Stadium. Here is a look at the staring pitching matchups for the weekend.

Friday, 7:10 p.m. PT (SportsNet LA)

Dan Haren needs 37 innings to reach 180, which would transform his 2015 club option for $10 million to a player option, with roughly seven starts remaining. Over his last seven starts, Haren has pitched 34⅓ innings, and put up a 6.29 ERA. Jon Niese has been susceptible to the long ball of late, allowing five home runs in his last three stars, with a 5.21 ERA during that span.

Saturday, 6:10 p.m. (SportsNet LA)

The middle game is a matchup of ailing starters. Zack Greinke was pushed back two days with elbow discomfort, but says he can pitch at 100-percent effectiveness even without feeling 100 percent physically. After missing two weeks with shoulder soreness, rookie Jacob deGrom looks for his sixth straight win. He is 5-0 with a 1.55 ERA in his last six starts, with 41 strikeouts and only seven walks in 40⅔ innings.

Sunday, 1:10 p.m. (SportsNet LA)

Kevin Correia hasn't faced the Mets since 2012. He makes his third start as a Dodger in the homestand finale. Bartolo Colon has a 2.86 ERA over his last five starts, with 30 strikeouts in 34⅔ innings, and has lasted seven innings or longer in 16 of 24 starts this season.
