Wednesday’s game for the Braves marks the first time that RHP Bartolo Colon will face off against his old team. Colon has become something of a cult hero as of late, he’s 43 years old and possibly over 300 pounds.
He made his MLB debut back in 1997, a year in which Ken Griffey Jr. was not only still active, but had won the MVP.
Perhaps most impressive during his career is that since he’s been 40, he’s averaged nearly 200 innings pitched per season.
That’s coupled with the fact that he has still been effective and as a result, desirable by other teams. His ERA over the same time frame has hovered around 4 and his workload can help to save a bullpen.
With the Braves he will serve as a mentor to a young team with some talented pitchers; and provide some laughs and disbelief along the way.
New York Mets
The Mets meanwhile will bring young ace in the making Jacob deGrom to the mound, coming off of a year in which he had some injury troubles.
Yet, when healthy, deGrom has the potential to be one of the more dominant pitchers in baseball along with his teammates.
Over the past three seasons in which deGrom has been a regular, he has a K/9 rate over nine, a rate that puts him near the top of the league and also a BB/9 rate that is considered above average.
Both rates got worse last year, but came on the heels of a surgery to his pitching elbow.
If healthy, we could be in store for a great season from deGrom at an age where many players begin their peak.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- NYM are 23-8 in their last 31 games as a favorite
- Under is 8-3-2 in deGroms last 13 Wed. starts
- ATL are 12-3 in their last 15 overall
Free Atlanta Braves vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
Colon is as steady as they come, but is also 43 against a lineup that could do some damage.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER 7
While the Mets have an ace in deGrom that is healthy and poised to dominate this year and against a weak Atlanta lineup. Mets with the win.
