  • Miami Marlins vs. New York Mets = 05/17 - 05/19

    Marlins Park


    Jacob deGrom, RH (3-4, 3.26, 64 Ks) - New York Mets

    Trevor Richards, LH (0-5, 4.46, 40 Ks) - Miami Marlins

    METS: deGrom appears fully recovered from his late April struggles. In three starts this month (21 innings), he has a 1.29 ERA, 21 strikeouts and four walks. Opponents are batting .162 against him, with a .469 OPS over that stretch.

    MARLINS: Richards will be making his ninth start, and still seeks his first win. To get hitters off of his changeup, a pitch they are hitting .200 against, he's added in a cut fastball. Richards is throwing the changeup 35 percent of the time, the cutter 13.2 percent and curveball 10.6.

    Steven Matz, LH (3-2, 3.86, 32 Ks) - New York Mets

    Pablo Lopez, RH (2-5, 5.93, 42 Ks) - Miami Marlins

    METS: Matz has not pitched since May 4 due to radial nerve discomfort in his left forearm, an issue that has bothered him sporadically throughout his career. He threw a 45-pitch bullpen session Wednesday, and should be good to go Saturday in Miami.

    MARLINS: Fresh off his worst MLB start (10 runs in three innings at the Mets), Lopez gets another shot at New York. Lopez hadn't allowed more than four runs or worked fewer than 4 2/3 innings this year before Friday's outing. Overall, he has thrown pretty well, with a 3.82 xFIP.

    Noah Syndergaard, RH (3-3, 4.74, 60 Ks) - New York Mets

    Sandy Alcantara, RH (1-4, 5.11, 28 Ks) - Miami Marlins

    METS: Syndergaard has alternated good starts with bad ones over his last four outings. His good starts have been excellent -- a shutout against the Reds, and eight innings of two-run ball versus the Nationals. But the Mets need more consistency from him.

    MARLINS: Throwing strikes has been an issue. Alcantara has a 4.70 BB/9 ratio to go with a 5.73 K/9. The right-hander gets the Mets for the second straight start, after losing at New York on Saturday, when he gave up four runs in 5 2/3 innings.His ERA is 6.19 in his past three starts.
