This National League matchup includes two starters that started in the bullpen this season.
The Mets throw out Verrett due to some injuries in the rotation.
The Rockies send Butler out, he hasn’t appeared in many games but did start in the pen.
New York Mets
The New York Mets started out in somewhat of a slump, but they have crawled away from the slump and has played well as of late.
They are led in hitting by the veteran shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera. Cabrera is hitting a solid .290 on the year, and has 8 doubles so far. The offense surrounds around Yoenis Cespedes, however Yo does this year is how good this Mets team is going to be.
Yo is hitting .288 on the year, but has hit 11 home runs and 31 runs batted in, both of which are team high.
The veteran David Wright is carrying a .387 on base percentage with getting 25 free passes to first base this year.
The Mets send out Logan Verrett to the mound for Steven Matz who is battling some soreness. Verrett has been coming out of the bullpen mostly this season, but has made 2 starts.
The first year pitcher out of Baylor is carrying a 1.27 E.R.A with 17ks. He was last in a start on April 19th against the Phillies in a win. He threw 6 shutout innings only giving up 6 hits, walking 1 batter, and striking out 4.
He looks to fill in nicely against this Rockies team.
The Colorado Rockies are about where everyone thought they would be, the loss of Jose Reyes could be a distraction coming up soon. But, the Rockies are currently led in all hitting categories by Nolan Arenado.
Arenado is currently hitting .321 with 13HR and 31 RBIs. He is paced by Gerardo Parra. Parra is currently hitting .309 with 14 doubles and 19 RBIs. The big story of the beginning of the year was the rookie Trevor Story.
Story was off to a very hot start in the beginning of the year, but seems to have cold off just a tad. Story is currently hitting .266 with 11 home runs and 27 RBIs.
The Rockies are sending out Eddie Butler to the mound, in only his 4 appearance.
Butler is currently 1-1 on the year with a 3.86 E.R.A. and has struck out 13 batters. He was last in action in a start against the Giants where he got the win. He went 6 innings of work, giving up 4 hits. Also striking out 6 batters and walking 2.
He looks to solidify his spot in this rotation.

Free New York Mets vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction:
This game of relievers oughta be interesting. It will really be interesting to see how long these guys go into this game without getting gassed. Both of these lineups have some very strong positions in them, but both carry some big holes in the lineup.
The key for these pitchers will be to get out the 3,4,5 hitters to be able to glide through the back end of the lineup. Look for this game to be high scoring as I see both of these pitchers giving up their share of hits in Colorado.
