Game Preview: Marlins vs Mets

The Mets are 0-1 in the José Bautista era as the Marlins snapped the Mets’ 4 game winning streak last night. Wheeler did a lot better than his line suggests as two of his three runs came after a critical José Reyes error on the field. Reyes’ fielding, coupled with an offense that struggled to string hits together led to a 5-1 loss.

Luckily Jacob deGrom is here to make us all feel better. Jacob is 4-0 over 9 games and 51.1 innings with a 1.75 ERA, 1.82 FIP, 1.013 WHIP and 219 ERA+. In his last five starts he has allowed 1 run over 26.1 innings from 17 hits and 8 walks while striking out 39 batters leading to a 0.34 ERA. His worst start of the season came in Miami, in a game the Mets eventually won, where he allowed 4 runs from 6.0 innings, 7 hits and 1 walk. The Marlins have the following numbers against deGrom:

  • Dietrich 4-19, BB, 9 K
  • Castro 6-15, BB
  • Bour 7-15, 2B,2 HR, 2 BB
  • Rojas 4-16, BB
  • Prado 3-13, 2B, BB
  • Realmuto 2-12
  • Maybin 0-9
  • Anderson 1-1, BB

The Mets bats are still on a journey to find themselves. Will they do it against Dan Straily tonight? Dan is 2-0 over 4 starts and 20.0 innings with a 3.60 ERA, 6.57 FIP, 1.450 WHIP and 102 ERA+. He is coming off by far his best start of the season where he shutout Altanta over 7.0 innings allowing 3 hits and 3 walks. He was great in three games against the Mets last season where he held the Mets to 3 runs over 15.1 innings (1.76 ERA). Surprisingly, the discrepancy between his ERA and FIP/WHIP this year was also featured against the Mets last year as the Mets only scored 3 times despite getting 8 hits and 10 walks. The Mets have the following numbers against Dan:

  • Reyes 2-11, 4 BB
  • Cabera 3-8, 2 2B, BB
  • Gonzalez 0-5, 2 BB
  • Bruce 1-6, HR
  • Flores 1-6
