PORT ST. LUCIE — Maybe they want to be just like Keith Hernandez.

Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard and Steven Matz have recently begun sporting mustaches at spring training in an apparent effort to give the Mets’ rotation a different look.

Zack Wheeler has maintained his goatee, distinguishing himself from the others.

But the pitchers are playing it coy regarding the new facial hair.

“I didn’t even notice – what mustaches?” deGrom said, adding that it might be a coincidence all four pitchers have a new look.

Matz said he wasn’t sure who the driving force was behind the rotation’s mustaches.

But pitching coach Dan Warthen, who also has been wearing a mustache, has a theory.

“I think they all conspired,” Warthen said. “I think they are trying to tell me how bad mine is.”
