Game Preview: Phillies vs Mets

The Mets had an off-day yesterday, which is weird considering it’s a National Holiday and that they had an off-day on Monday but whatever. Glad the bullpen could get extra rest and hope the players had time to relax with friends and family. The Mets are back at it tonight after splitting the series with the Yankees (thus also splitting the season series with the Yankees).

Jacob deGrom brings us back for the final weekend of baseball before the All-Star break. He is 4-7 over 17 games and 103.0 innings with a 3.32 ERA, 3.12 FIP, 1.107 WHIP and 123 ERA+. He is coming off a fairly average start against the Braves where he allowed 3 runs over 6.0 innings and in his last 8 starts has posted a 2.65 ERA over 51.0 innings. Jacob hasn’t faced the Phillies at all this year and last year allowed only 1 run, unearned, over 18.0 innings in three starts against them. The Phillies have the following stats against deGrom:

The Mets bats will get a look at Vince Velasquez who is 2-5 over 19 games and 9 starts with 51.1 innings of work posting a 4.73 ERA, 5.37 FIP, 1.422 WHIP, and 96 ERA+. He has had one good start (1 run, 5.0 innings) and two poor starts (combined 6.2 innings, 8 runs) since returning to the rotation on June 16th. He was a starter the last time he faced the Mets in April, holding the Mets scoreless over 5.0 innings in probably his best start of the season. The Mets have the following numbers against him:
