The Mets bats will get a second look at Tommy Hanson this season. In two starts this season, Hanson is 1-1 over 10.0 innings with a 2.70 ERA. Tommy faced the Mets on Opening Day where he allowed one earned run in 5 innings, picking up the loss against Santana. Last season he was 0-2 vs the Mets as he allowed 10 ER in 8.1 innings. The Mets have the following numbers against Hanson:
