Mets over-under

Context: 25-year-old Chris Schwinden looks likely to start the season sixth on the Mets’ starting pitching depth chart — pitching every fifth day in Buffalo and getting the first call whenever someone in the big league club’s rotation needs to miss a couple of turns. Schwinden started four games for the Mets in 2012.

The Major League Mets will probably carry Miguel Batista, who could make a spot start here and there. Schwinden is on the Mets’ 40-man roster, as are fellow Triple-A starter Jeremy Hefner and prospect Jeurys Familia. Familia threw 87 2/3 innings in Double-A in 2011 and could start the year in Triple-A as well. Matt Harvey also figures to play into the Mets’ rotation discussion later in the season.
