Chicago was hoping to get Darvish off the DL for this outing against New York. He has been dealing with right tricep inflammation, which isn’t too serious if handled properly, but it seems as though Mike Montgomery will get the nod.
Montgomery was solid in his first start of the season as he pitched 5.2 scoreless innings against the Pittsburgh Pirates. The ground ball pitcher owns a low 5.98 K/9 and 2.90 BB/9, while he doesn’t give up the long ball with a 0.58 HR/9. He’ll look to improve his 4.35 ERA and 3.74 FIP.
Chicago has been hot lately as they’ve won five of their last seven contests. During that time their lineup is slashing a solid .301/.387/.488 to go with 26 extra-base hits and 37 RBI.
New York Mets
deGrom was yet again spectacular in his last outing, but got the no-decision as New York would go on to lose 3-4 to the Atlanta Braves. He traveled seven innings giving up five hits and one earned run off of a solo home run while he struck out eight and walked three.
deGrom has now put in three quality starts in a row since returning from the DL. In those three starts he has gone seven innings in each while he only gave up two total earned runs and one home run. He also has a terrific 29:5 strike-out-walk ratio. He should be up for the Cy Young award when it is all said and done.
New York Continues to play losing baseball as they have lost six of their last eight contests in the past week. During that time their lineup has been slashing .263/.341/.445 to go with 26 extra-base hits and 38 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Total
deGrom is hot and should be able to contain this Chicago lineup. I also expect Montgomery to hold his own against a Mets lineup that owns a .604 OPS against lefties. Roll with the under here.
