New York Mets
No odds yet for this game because it’s the second game of a doubleheader on Monday between the Mets and Braves. Atlanta has announced it will throw Brandon McCarthy and the Mets have hinted it will be Seth Lugo, though that isn’t confirmed.
Lugo was formerly a starting pitcher but has made all of his 19 appearances out of the bullpen this season. He’s been stellar, throwing 31 innings with a 1.72 ERA with a WHIP under 1.00.
He’s valuable because of his ability to be dominant in short stints and even capable of going two, three innings and throw 40-50 pitches.
He can start too and if he does get the ball in this one it will probably only be the first four or five innings, assuming everything goes on well. He isn’t stretched out so Terry Collins won’t ask too much of him. In the second game of a doubleheader that could be problematic.
The Braves lost their series in Boston this weekend but remain on top of the NL East, just barely. Atlanta got a good start from Mike Foltynewicz, who took advantage of a day off for Mookie Betts, and beat up on Chris Sale in the win.
Brandon McCarthy came over as a salary dump from the Dodgers but he’s thrown some good games and surely has had a positive influence on the Braves’ starting rotation this season.
Most importantly, he’s stayed healthy and dependable. This will be McCarthy’s 11th start for a rotation that hasn’t remained completely healthy. He’s averaging over five innings per start and beat Philadelphia for the fourth time this season in his most recent outing.
