New York Mets
Michael Conforto has been carrying the Mets’ offense with Yoenis Cespedes on the shelf. Cespedes remains sidelined and has yet to resume running, so Conforto will need to continue his torrid pace.
He currently leads the team with 14 HR, 36 RBI, a .308 BA and a .410 OBP. Jay Bruce trails Conforto by one bomb, and Lucas Duda is now up to a double digit total as the only three Mets to have reached the mark this season.
Zack Wheeler will take the hill, entering as essentially the Mets’ second best healthy starter behind Jacob deGrom. Wheeler currently leads the team in ERA amongst the rotation with a 3.72, though this comes along with a 1.37 WHIP.
Addison Reed has been solid in the 9th, taking over the closing duties from the injured Jeurys Familia.
Texas sit in 4th place in the AL West with a 26-31 record, failing to meet the lofty expectations early on which were placed on them entering the season.
Elvis Andrus has done his part for the club, entering the game with a .305 average and on pace for career highs in homers with 7 to date. Joey Gallo has provided the power as advertised, swatting 16 homeruns which is good for a tie for 3rd best in the AL.
Yu Darvish is the ace of the Rangers staff and will take the hill for his 13th start of the season. So far, Darvish has compiled a 3.13 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP with 80 K in 74.2 innings thrown.
The matchup should be solid enough for Darvish to push his season record to 6-4.

Free New York Mets vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
The Mets currently sit 2nd place in their division, though their record sits at 24-31, which is worse than Texas’, who play in a much stronger division.
The Mets will also stretch to have a DH, though missing key bodies will certainly thin their lineup. Texas meanwhile has just received Adrian Beltre back and are near full health in what should be a powerful, deep lineup.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Texas 1.5
Yes, Zack Wheeler has pitched well thus far this season after entering the season with his starting role in question.
However, the Rangers’ lineup is one of the better ones in baseball and the game will be hosted at the hitter friendly Globe Life Park, so I expect Wheeler’s numbers to rise. Darvish should certainly be able to outpitch his counterpart and earn the W.
