New York Mets
With newly hired manager Buck Showalter in charge, the New York Mets are off to their best start to a season since 1988, when they won 100 games and the NL East title. The team currently leads the National League and has the second-best record in Major League Baseball behind the New York Yankees. The Mets have the 3rd-highest-scoring offense in the majors (2nd in the NL) and lead the NL in hitting with runners in scoring position. 1B Pete Alonso and SS Francisco Lindor lead the team in home runs. Their starting rotation has been solid even without superstars Jacob deGrom (shoulder injury) and Max Scherzer (left oblique strain). While there has been no exact timetable on deGrom’s return, Scherzer, who took a rehab start for Double-A Binghamton earlier this week, could potentially rejoin the Mets rotation this Sunday. The three-time Cy Young Award winner has been on the injured list since May 19.
The Miami Marlins have not had a winning record in a full season since 2009 and currently sit fourth in the NL East. The team may have dropped three of four games against the Mets last week but their lone 6-2 victory in the series made a powerful statement: RHP Sandy Alcantara is a top contender for the Cy Young Award. Alcantara allowed just two runs over eight innings to beat the Mets last Sunday improving his record to 7-2 with a 1.72 ERA in his 14 starts this season. In November 2021, he signed a five-year extension worth $56 million that lasts through 2027. The Marlins have never had a Cy Young winner. Marlins 2B Jazz Chisholm Jr. has also brought the heat in Miami. The 24-year-old is is in his second full season in the Majors and leads Miami in HR, RBI, and OPS.
