2018 Season

Mets vs. Marlins Pre-Game Report – 4/10/18

The Mets hope to win their seventh straight game tonight, as they take on the Miami Marlins tonight.

The Mets were able to take advantage of a handful of Marlins’ miscues last night in order to come away with the win. They were also aided by another stalwart performance by their bullpen, where they were able to shut down the Marlins for the final four innings.

RHP Corey Oswalt was promoted to the Mets today, with Brandon Nimmo being optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas to make room on the 25-man roster for Oswalt. Oswalt had a 12-5 record, a 2.25 ERA, and a 3.31 FIP in Double-A Binghamton last season. Oswalt will provide reinforcement for a bullpen that has seen a lot of work in this young season.

Jacob deGrom will start against Marlins’ RHP Caleb Smith (0-1, 4.32 ERA, 2 starts). deGrom had a solid outing in his last start on Friday, where he allowed one earned run and struck out 5 Nationals hitters in six innings pitched.
