The Mets will play 14 games on three days’ rest, including four against the Orioles, two against the Blue Jays and two against Baltimore Orioles, in what is a record-setting season for them.
The Mets are on a three-game homestand with the Blue Jackets and Indians, who are also on three-day rest, as well as three games against the Pirates, the White Sox and Orioles.
A few other teams are also playing three days of rest on the road.
This year’s schedule is the second-most ever for a team, and the third-most for a club.

Three days off is also a record, and will tie for the most for a single team in a season, and is a feat accomplished by the Royals and Braves.
The Royals will take the third day off, while the Braves and Dodgers will take both days off.
