Today’s matchup is between the Tampa Bay Rays (35-19) and the New York Mets (24-29). The Rays have won their last 4 games while the Mets have won 3 of their last 5 games. The Tampa Bay Rays are coming of a sweep against Baltimore where they outscored Baltimore 18-9.

The Rays are starting Peter Fairbanks (RHP), who is 5-3 in 24 appearances, pitching a 2.74 ERA, 2.71 FIP, .289 wOBA, K% of 32%, BB% of 11.7%, 90.4 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.43 WHIP in 23 innings pitched.

The Mets are starting Jacob deGrom (RHP), who is 4-1 in 10 starts with a 2.09 ERA, 2.01 FIP, .229 wOBA, K% of 36.4%, BB% of 6.4%, 87.6 MPH average exit velocity, and a 0.93 WHIP in 56 innings pitched.

The Rays are the 2nd best in the Majors in Relieving Pitching (WAR) while the Mets are 17th.

On the hitting side, the Rays have a .329 wOBA and a .332 OBP. The Mets have a .352 wOBA and a .355 OBP. The Rays have 72 HRs this season while the Mets have 73 HRs.

Peter Fairbanks will act as the opener as he isn't likely to play more than an inning and Josh Fleming will play the majority of the game but this duo doesn't compare well to the likes of Jacob deGrom who is in contention for the C.Y. Young award. Jacob deGrom will be the main issue for the Tampa Bay Rays as I don't see how Peter Fairbanks and Josh Fleming are going to outplay deGrom.
