New York Mets
The Mets held Steven Matz out for the first six weeks of this season with a tender left elbow. With Zack Wheeler’s injury history and what happened to Noah Syndergaard this season, the Mets have to just be happy that Matz hasn’t missed a start since he made that first one.
The results could be better, however. Matz is 2-5 with a 5.77 ERA. He’s had his moments (back-to-back starts of 7 IP, 0 ER at the end of June and early July) but he’s given up 3 or more in 8 of his 11 outings, overall.
Yoenis Cespedes is still around but he only has 12 home runs this season. He isn’t likely to hit one off of Aaron Nola, either.
The Phillies’ starter on Saturday is one of the hottest in baseball. Aaron Nola has gone at least 6 innings in each of his last 9 starts and hasn’t given up as many as 3 runs in any of them.
Before that run, Nola’s ERA was 4.76; now it’s 3.12.
That’s the best explanation why the Phillies, despite approaching 30 games under .500, are solid favorites Saturday night. I don’t disagree with that assessment.
