The Mets’ longest road trip of the season came to a close on Sunday, and while it ended with a loss, it was still a productive stretch.

They finished the 10-game California swing with a 7-3 record, including a sweep of the Athletics and a series win over the Dodgers. With only six games played so far at Citi Field, the Mets join the Blue Jays as the two teams with the fewest games at home to start 2023.

Now they welcome the Nationals for three games beginning Tuesday and the Braves for four between Friday and Monday. Here is what’s on deck for the Mets as they return home for a seven-game homestand against a pair of National League East foes:

Nationals’ up-and-coming arms

The Nationals are now relying on a pair of pitchers they received in two separate blockbuster deals.

Josiah Gray is in his second full season with the Nationals after being traded from the Dodgers in a six-player deal that shipped out Max Scherzer and Trea Turner.

12 METS GAMES TO WATCH:Start making your Mets plans for this summer

After pitching to a 7-10 record with a 5.02 ERA last season, Gray, who will pitch Tuesday, has settled in this season. Since giving up five earned runs in his first game against the Braves, the 25-year-old New Rochelle, New York, native has allowed two runs or fewer in each of his last three starts, lowering his ERA to 3.74. The Nationals were shut out in all three of those outings, so his record stands at 0-4.

MacKenzie Gore was acquired by the Nationals in last season’s deal that sent Juan Soto and Josh Bell to the Nationals. He made 13 starts for the Padres last season, and enters Wednesday’s start with a 2-1 record and 3.43 ERA. He has limited each of his opponents to five hits or fewer but has also walked four in three of his starts.

Brandon Nimmo on fire

Through the opening week of the season, Brandon Nimmo was getting on base with walks but had only a few hits to show for it.

Now, Nimmo is tying all of his plate discipline and contact skills together.

Nimmo has 22 hits in the Mets’ last 11 games, helping to up his slash line to .350/.455/.500 with a total of two home runs, 14 runs, 13 RBI and three stolen bases. With a 1.6 WAR, according to FanGraphs, he is the most valuable player in all of Major League Baseball.

On top of that, he’s made a half-dozen diving catches already, which puts him in the top 4% of outs above average in the field.

How does the Mets’ rotation line up?

With an injury to Carlos Carrasco and 10-game suspension to Scherzer, the Mets’ starting rotation was thrown into disarray.

One of the pleasant surprises in the task of finding suitable replacements was the performance of Joey Lucchesi, who on Friday night made his first major league start since June 2021 after Tommy John surgery and delivered seven scoreless innings with nine strikeouts. The left-hander is slotted to pitch on Thursday against former Met Trevor Williams.

The question remains about who will fill in another empty spot in the rotation on Tuesday.

Justin Verlander threw three innings in a simulated game on Sunday. He’ll make one rehab start at the end of the week before making his Mets debut. Meanwhile, Scherzer will be eligible to return for the team’s May 1 matchup with the Braves.

Chasing the Braves in NL East

After Sunday’s game, the Mets were a half-game below Atlanta in the NL East.

The Braves (14-8) opened the season with a 14-4 record, but they have since dropped four straight games, including a weekend sweep at the hands of the Astros.

The Mets’ NL East rivals still rank among the best teams in the MLB in several categories. With 30 home runs, led by Matt Olson’s six and Ozzie Albies’ and Sean Murphy’s five apiece, the Braves are tied for fourth in MLB.

Murphy and Ronald Acuna Jr. both have opened with an OPS above 1.000.

With a 3.47 team ERA, the Braves lead the National League. Max Fried has allowed only one earned run in his first 15 innings, while Bryce Elder is 2-0 with a 1.14 ERA and Spencer Strider has 36 strikeouts in 22 innings — second-best in the National League.

The Braves open the week with a four-game series at home against the Marlins before traveling north for Friday’s series opener with the Mets.
