Mitchell is an option to take Masahiro Tanaka's (shoulder) place in the starting rotation, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports.

Mitchell filled in for a spot start earlier this season, allowing one earned run over five innings in a no-decision against the Twins, and would presumably line up to face the Mets in Monday's series opener. Luis Cessa, who has made four major-league starts this season, is the other option to take the mound, but the opportunity will likely only consist of two starts either way.
