New York Mets David Peterson (2-0, 4.32 ERA) vs. Texas Rangers Jon Gray (2-2, 2.17 ERA)


David Peterson of the New York Mets brings an eclectic combination to the mound, despite an unimpressive 4.32 ERA. With two wins to his credit and only 75 innings pitched under his belt so far this season, Peterson shows promise as an arm to count on; yet his high WHIP (1.5) and limited innings suggests potential for greater variability than desired against Texas Rangers’ lineup that capitalizes well on hits/walks opportunities. His challenge will be using experience to learn from past performances so he can minimize damage while prolonging his innings count – effective control/smart pitching will help him navigate his way around their batted order successfully.


On the contrary, Texas Rangers pitcher Jon Gray boasts an outstanding 2.17 ERA and 1.23 WHIP over 62.1 innings pitched this year, as evidenced by outstanding control, strikeout rates that consistently fall well under walk and home run rates and his consistent ability to keep runners off bases as key components in his success this season. When facing Mets batters his strategy should focus on exploiting weaknesses by inducing ground balls while using his strikeout ability; furthermore his performance may very well determine their home win victory for sure
