The last time Tanaka faced the Mets he ended up on the DL, as he strained both hamstrings while running the bases June 8 at Citi Field. Prior to the injury, Tanaka had permitted a solo homer over five innings, striking out eight with one walk.

The rookie left-hander ended his first half with struggles against the Cubs. Still, he’s turned things around in a big way after a shaky start to 2018. Since the start of June, Lauer owns a 3.17 ERA, and he’s seen an uptick in fastball velocity.

With trade rumors swirling around him, Wheeler will look to beat the Padres for the second time this season. Teams have been checking in on Wheeler, whom many consider a more affordable trade target than Jacob deGrom or Noah Syndergaard.

Lucchesi was optioned to Triple-A for the All-Star break so he could continue to pitch after missing a month with a right hip strain. He threw more balls than strikes in his first PCL start and allowed seven runs in 2 2/3 innings.

Sidelined since June 22 due to a strained right calf, Vargas will return against the Padres. The Mets considered keeping rookie Corey Oswalt in the rotation instead of Vargas, but opted to give the lefty a chance to solve his first-half issues.

Richard is coming off his worst start of the season, in which he allowed seven runs over three innings in Philly. He thinks a mechanical tweak is all that’s needed to fix his control issues. Richard has issued 18 walks in four starts this month.
