The Mets have announced their rotation plans for the National League Division Series, with Jacob deGrom pitching in Game 1, and possibly on short rest in Game 4 if needed, per various New York beat writers. He will be followed by Noah Syndergaard and Matt Harvey, per reports.

The status of left-hander Steven Matz is still up in the air, but the Mets could still start him if he is recovered from a back injury that forced him to skip his final regular season start. Matz is the only left-handed starter who would pitch in the series for the Mets.

deGrom starts the Mets' season finale on Sunday. Just like Clayton Kershaw starts for the Dodgers, though manager Don Mattingly has yet to officially announce the Dodgers' NLDS rotation.

As for infielder Juan Uribe, batting a chest injury, his status remains in doubt.
