Team to Target

New York Mets

It hurts me as a Braves fan, but I think the New York Mets could be in for a good week. It will actually start with one game against the Atlanta Braves.

The Braves have had really good starting pitching through the first month, but they are projected to start Bryce Elder on Monday. So while the Braves pitching has been good, the Mets look to get their No. 5 starter, one who has some peripherals that suggest regression.

They will then travel out to Detroit to take on the Tigers. So far, the Tigers have a 4.72 ERA, 4.83 FIP, and 4.50 xFIP. The Mets will see Eduardo Rodriquez, who has been really really good. However, they will also see Michael Lorenzen and Joey Wentz who both currently have ERAs over 7.00.

Afterward, they will head home to take on the Colorado Rockies. When the Rockies come to town, opposing offenses smile. The reason to smile is that the Rockies have a 5.13 ERA, 5.02 FIP, and 4.70 xFIP.

The Rockies will start Noah Davis, who has a 2.53 career ERA in 10.2 innings, however, this will be his biggest test. After, the Rockies will throw Austin Gomber who has a 9.28 ERA, and Ryan Feltner who has a 4.68 ERA. Should be a fun week for the Mets.

Team to Avoid

San Francisco Giants

The San Francisco Giants have had a decent offense to start the year. However, nobody has arguably a tougher week of pitching matchups than the Giants next week.

Houston has the second-best team ERA at 3.20 which is supported by a 3.63 FIP and 3.78 xFIP. They are projected to start Luis Garcia (4.00 ERA), Hunter Brown (2.37 ERA), and Framber Valdez (2.25 ERA). Oh, then they turn it over to arguably the best bullpen in baseball. Runs are scarce when it comes to the Houston pitching staff.

After they finish up with Houston, they will move on to the Brewers who run a pitching lab. The Brewers sport a 3.42 ERA, 4.31 FIP, and 4.43 xFIP. The peripherals suggest regression, but the Brewers will still send Corbin Burnes a former CY Young winner and Wade Miley (1.96 ERA). Colin Rea is a weak spot and project to start, but the Brewers elite bullpen headlined by Devin Williams can make up for any shortcomings by a starter.
