Game Preview: Braves vs Mets

The Mets look to bounce back after last night’s typical deGrom start where deGrom went 8.0 innings, allowed only two runs and the only run the Mets scored was the one that deGrom pushed across the plate himself. Poor Jacob, we don’t deserve him. Anyway the Mets will see Kevin Gausman make his Braves debut tonight as we send out the not-traded Zack Wheeler for the first time after the deadline.

Zack Wheeler is 5-6 over 120.1 innings in 20 starts posting a 4.11 ERA, 3.58 FIP, 1.288 WHIP, and a 93 ERA+. His last start was great as he allowed no runs over 6.0 innings and now in his last two starts he has allowed 2 runs over 13.0 innings. His only start against Atlanta this year was pretty bad as he allowed 6 runs over 5.2 innings and was probably his last bad start (he’s posted a 2.96 ERA over 51.2 innings and 8 games since then). The Braves have the following numbers against him:

  • Freeman 8-16, 2 2B, 2 HR, 10 BB (.667 OBP)
  • Flowers 2-4, HR
  • Albies 0-3
  • Inciarte 2-3
  • Makakis 2-3
  • Swanson 1-3, 2B

For the Orioles this year Gausman pitched 124.0 innings over 21 games with a 4.43 ERA, 4.59 FIP, 1.379 WHIP and 94 ERA+. His last start against the Rays was a positive bounce back allowing 2 runs over 7.0 innings. In his two starts before that he allowed 10 runs over 9.2 innings from 15 hits and 4 walks. The following Mets have seen Gausman in action:

  • Bautista 6-26, 2B, HR, 3 BB
  • Jackson 2-10, 2 2B
  • Reyes 4-10, 2B
  • Frazier 0-5
  • Conforto 0-3
  • Flores 1-2

Let’s Go Mets!
