Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Baltimore Orioles vs New York Mets
The Mets will welcome the Orioles to Citi Field to play in an interleague 2 game series. The Mets are 4th in the NL East while the O’s are in the last place in the AL East. This will their first time meeting this season.
Baltimore Orioles's Latest Performance :
The Orioles are coming off a series loss against the Yankees, the O’s now drop to 17-41 on the season. The O’s will use this upcoming draft to plan for the future. Coming into this series the O’s are 29th in batting with only 215 runs scored this season and they also have a 5.00 ERA when it comes to pitching. The O’s are also the first team this season to have more than 40 losses. The Orioles have the worst road record of 7-23 on the season. The best bet for this team right now is to start from scratch because they won’t be able to compete against the AL East division the talent pool is way too high for them at the moment.
Manny Machado went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and two strikeouts. He was one of three Orioles batters to hit home runs in the contest. He is now up to 18 homers on the season and his third in the last four games. He’s up to 47 RBI for the campaign, now. In addition, the star shortstop owns a .327/.398/.633 triple-slash across 226 at-bats. The thing with Manny is that he is too good of a player to playing on the O’s he is putting up great numbers for the team but it won’t do him any help if the team keeps on losing. I expect him to get traded in the near future and whoever picks him up will be getting a steal.
Pitching for the Orioles will be Dylan Bundy. He allowed 11 hits, but he notched a quality start in his last outing in a loss to the Nationals. The righty, who threw a complete game in the start prior, continues to receive little run support in his starts. He is hoping that his team will be able to get him the win on the road against the Mets.
New York Mets's Latest Performance :
The Mets have started off their 9 game homestand on the wrong foot as they are coming off a 4 game series sweep against the Cubs. The Mets took a massive hit in the standings after the 4 straight losses they now have a losing record of 27-30 after a terrific start to the year winning 11 straight this season is starting to look like a lost season if the Mets don’t turn things around. However, the Mets will be able to make ground as they will play the O’s in a two-game series. The Mets are 26th in scoring with 230 runs scored this season. The Mets managed only three hits in the last game against the Cubs that must improve when the O’s come to visit. The starting pitchers have a 2.48 ERA over the past 16 games but the Mets offense is nowhere to be seen.
Asdrubal Cabrera will have to play well for the Mets against the Orioles at home as he is now the team leader in homers and RBIs with 10 and 34 respectively. If he plays well great things tend to happen because other batters will be able to feed off his energy. He will look to bounce back from a tough series against the Cubs in one game he went 0 for 6 on the plate that won’t happen two series in a row, playing the Orioles will allow him to regain his confidence on the plate. After a string of bad performances his line dropped to .292/.335/.507 this season.
Pitching for the Mets will be Zack Wheeler. He posted six strong innings on Friday night, but he and the bullpen faded in the seventh inning in a 7-4 loss. Wheeler will face the Orioles for the first time in his career. He owns a 5.14 ERA with a 1.48 WHIP.
