The Arizona Diamondbacks will head up to Queens to begin a three-game set with the New York Mets this Monday from Citi Field on SNY.

Diamondbacks Preview & Projected Starter

Arizona enters at 75-69  after taking three of four from Chicago. The Diamondbacks showed in a big way at Wrigley, and they’ll look to further solidify their playoff spot here this week. The Arizona offense is scoring 4.34 runs per game, while batting .257, with a .326 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.41 ERA, with a 1.34 WHIP. 

Zach Davies (2-5, 6.81 ERA, 59 Ks) will get the call for Arizona. The ninth-year pitcher struggled with Colorado at home last week, allowing five runs through just three innings, but run support prevented a losing decision. Davies is what he is at this point in his career, and the veteran pitcher does have a tendency to allow runs after giving up four or more in six of his last ten starts.  

DBacks Player Trends & Props

Christian Walker went hitless in three games at Wrigley, so he may be due this week, and he’s Arizona’s leader in home runs (30) and RBI (91).   

Ketel Marte has collected a hit in eight of the last nine games,, and he’s first on the team in hits (141), with 22 homers and 73 runs batted in.

Corbin Carroll recorded multiple hits in three of four games against Chicago, and he’s leading the DBacks in batting (.284), with 24 home runs and 69 RBI. 

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. has totaled multiple bases in seven of the last ten contests, and he’s posting splits of .257/23/73.


Mets Preview & Projected Starter

New York moved to 65-77 after dropping two of three to Minnesota. The Mets closed strong with a game three win on Sunday, and they’ll look for better results success this week at home. The New York offense is scoring 3.98 runs per game, while batting .238, with a .318 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.39 ERA, with a 1.35 WHIP.

Jose Quintana (2-5, 3.00 ERA, 35 Ks) will get the call for New York. The veteran lefty put together his longest outing of the season in DC last week, pitching seven innings of one-run ball against the Nats to earn his second victory. Quintana has come through on his end for the Mets, and he more than deserved that winning decision, after pitching seven quality starts in his last eight appearances. 

Mets Player Trends & Props

Pete Alonso has homered in each of the last three series, and he leads the Mets in home runs (43) and RBI (103). 

Francisco Lindor has totaled multiple bases in five of the previous seven games, and he’s second on the team with 26 homers and 85 RBI. 

Brandon Nimmo has recorded a hit in nine of the last ten games, and he leads NYM in hits (137), with 23 HR and 58 RBI. 

Jeff McNeil collected a hit in two of three matchups against Minnesota, and he’s leading the team in batting (.266), with 49 runs batted in. 

Corey’s Free Pick

Arizona’s playoff push received a jolt this past weekend when they stole three of four from their fellow NL Wild Card hopefuls, but may face a stiff slight test here with Jose Quintana set to go out at home. The over will be in play, just in case Arizona comes to play, back the Mets at home for this contest.
