Wei-Yin Chen is the epitome of the middle class in MLB, he’s neither interesting nor astounding.
He’s not even bad enough to warrant that level of intrigue; and certainly isn’t the guy that national writers take time to analyze and devote 1000 words too either.
Chen spent his first four years with the Baltimore Orioles, posting more than two wins each season, and never having an ERA more than 4.07. His best year was 2015 in which he had a 3.34 ERA in nearly 200 innings pitched.
Chen did regress in 2016, a year plagued by injury, but when healthy he’s about as reliable a middle of the order pitcher one could have.
New York Mets
Zack Wheeler was draft sixth overall back in 2009, and for a pitcher with that draft position one would expect they would be rounding into form and settling into ace level status.
Wheeler’s path has been a bit different, he’s only had one truly full season at the major league level, much of which can be attributed to injuries.
Given his injury history, Wheeler is especially difficult to project moving forward. In 2014 he did have an ERA in the mid 3s, with an above average strikeout rate.
His precision was lacking and as a result walked nearly four batters per nine innings.
However his star hasn’t been diminished, many still consider him to be at least a worthy contributor and some even believe he’ll reach great heights.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- NYM are 23-9 in their last 32 games as a favorite
- MIA are 7-3 in Chens last 10 starts
- MIA are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings vs. NYM
Free Miami Marlins vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
The pitching matchup is even at this point of the season, as the general public still doesn’t know what to expect from Wheeler and Chen is coming off of a down year.
Picking a winner is a gut call, and I like the Marlins lineup more than the Mets.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER 7.5
The line does seem low for this matchup, considering that both pitchers are unknown commodities. I think it’s possible that one of these two pitchers struggles in this matchup.
