Game Preview: Mets @ Mariners

Yesterday was a whirlwind day! At the start of the game, things were looking good for the Mets who jumped out to an early lead and made a trade for Miami’s closer indicating that the Mets were intent on competing at a high level in 2018. Then Montero faultered and the Mets lost the lead. But they rallied and won the game! So the Mets look to make it two in a row today.

Jacob deGrom starts for the Mets today. He is 12-3 over 20 games and 133.2 innings with a 3.30 ERA, 3.69 FIP and 1.160 WHIP. Jacob has won his last 8 starts pitching 61.2 innings with a 1.61 ERA in that stretch holding opponents to a .180 BA and .222 OBP in that stretch. Jacob has also faced quite a few Mariners over his career:

  • Espinosa 0-11, 8 K
  • Ruiz 1-9
  • Segura 2-9
  • Cano 0-3
  • Seager 1-2, BB
  • Zunino 0-3

The Mets bats will get a look at Yovani Gallardo today. The long time Brewer has hopped around quite a bit since he was traded to Rangers in January of 2015. He was then signed by the Orioles and the following year he was traded to the Mariners. This year he has been more ore less the same pitcher he was last year for the Orioles. So far he is 4-7 over 19 games, 15 starts, with a 5.58 ERA, 4.94 FIP and 1.489 WHIP (last year 5.42 ERA, 5.04 FIP, 1.585 WHIP). His last time out against the Yankees was his first start since June 17th. Prior to that break he had a stretch of 8 games where he posted a 7.84 ERA over 41.1 IP with opponents reaching base at a .374 clip. In his last start he allowed 5 hits and 3 walks over 5.0 innings leading to 3 runs. The Mets have the following numbers against Yovani:

  • Jay Bruce 18-57, 4 2B, 2 HR, 4 BB
  • Walker 8-36, 3B, 3 BB
  • Reyes 5-17, 2 2B, 3B
  • Granderson 0-5, 2 BB
  • R Rivera 0-5, BB
  • Cabrera 1-5
  • d’Arnaud 1-5
  • Cespedes 1-3

Let’s Go Mets!
