Arizona (A Young) – NY Mets (M Stroman) Match Prediction | 12-09-2019 13:10

He lasted a career-best eight innings and scattered two hits while walking one to pick up the win. After making his major league debut on June 27, hes been a big boost to Arizonas rotation as theyve made their move in the NL Wild Card race. The Mets will face their third rookie pitcher over the four-game series on Thursday afternoon. In his last start, the 25-year-old set a new Diamondbacks rookie record by striking out 12 Reds hitters en route to his seventh win.

deGrom is 6/11 on quality starts this season and four for his last six. And last Wednesday he held Washington to one run on two hits through six frames. But hes also allowed five runs or more three times already this season, after never doing that once in 32 starts last year. Monday he held the Dodgers to two runs on seven hits through five innings of a game New York eventually lost 9-5.

For the first time in his major league career, Wilmer Flores will suit up against the Mets rather than as a member of the orange and blue. Flores missed the earlier series this season in Arizona after landing on the injured list. Expect Flores,, who became a fan favorite after nearly getting traded to the Brewers in 2015 in the now-infamous failed Carlos Gomez trade and showed his emotions on the field, to get a video tribute and a huge standing ovation from the Flushing faithful.

Personalise

Arizona entered Sunday as winners of 12 out of 13 games before falling to the Cincinnati Reds. The two losses theyve suffered in their last 14 games happened in their opponents final at-bat. Even with yesterdays loss, the Diamondbacks remain the hottest team in the National League as they have moved within a stones throw of the Cubs for that playoff spot.

Through two, he was at over 50 pitches but was able to escape having only allowed one run. It took him 101 pitches to get through the outing, with most of those coming in the first two innings. It remains to be seen whether he will price himself out of New Yorks range, but his inconsistency could keep his contract low enough that the Mets may entertain bringing the right-hander back. He allowed seven hits and struck out three while walking two. Wheeler likely has only four more starts this season to make a case for a big contract in the offseason. Wheeler plodded through a five inning performance against the Washington Nationals in his last start but left with a win thanks to his offense.

Though Greinke has two years remaining on his contract, dealing him would make some sense for the Diamondbacks. At 35, Greinke would be a better fit for a team ready to contend than one looking to rebuild over the next couple of seasons. As Morosi pointed out, Arizona has talent in its farm system, and Greinke would net a lot in return.

NY Mets vs. Arizona Diamondbacks Pick

Im disappointed that I cant add to what I already have, which I feel good about and strong about, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said at a press conference Wednesday, shortly after New York beat Greinke and Arizona 7-5 in an afternoon game.

Along with being a reliable bench bat, Flores set the franchise record with 10 walk-off hits during his time with the team. In 75 games this season, hes hitting .319/.362/.486 with seven home runs, a 119 wRC+, and a 0.9 fWAR. After batting injuries early on, Flores has been raking lately and has played his way into the everyday starting lineup for the Diamondbacks.

The feat matched the franchises single-season record, tying Darryl Strawberry in 1987 and Jose Reyes in 2008. In the loss, Alonso reached base for the 33rd straight game. He can break the record on Monday night, although he still has a little bit to go to match John Oleruds record of 44 games, which he accomplished at the end of the 1998 season and extended into 1999. Over the course of those 33 games, Alonso is slashing .308/.391/.609 with 11 home runs, seven doubles, and a 157 wRC+.
