Arizona (A Young) – NY Mets (M Stroman) Match Prediction | 12-09-2019 13:10

Though Greinke has two years remaining on his contract, dealing him would make some sense for the Diamondbacks. At 35, Greinke would be a better fit for a team ready to contend than one looking to rebuild over the next couple of seasons. As Morosi pointed out, Arizona has talent in its farm system, and Greinke would net a lot in return.

Of course, everybody knows what happened next, and deGrom once again had to settle for a no-decision. For the second straight start, he went seven innings and allowed four earned runs. The right-hander has four more starts to make his case for a second consecutive Cy Young award as he competes with Hyun-Jin Ryu, Max Scherzer, and Mike Soroka, among others in the field. Over the first seven innings, he allowed two earned runs but he labored and battled without his best stuff at his disposal. It was another one of those starts for deGrom where the stat line doesnt tell the full story. Mickey Callaway left him in for the eighth, which resulted in a quick two-run home run by Juan Soto that ended his night. For once, his offense put up a ton of runs for their ace as it looked like the Mets would cruise to an easy victory after erupting for five runs in the ninth.

For the first time in his major league career, Wilmer Flores will suit up against the Mets rather than as a member of the orange and blue. Flores missed the earlier series this season in Arizona after landing on the injured list. Expect Flores,, who became a fan favorite after nearly getting traded to the Brewers in 2015 in the now-infamous failed Carlos Gomez trade and showed his emotions on the field, to get a video tribute and a huge standing ovation from the Flushing faithful.

In addition to residing four off the pace for a playoff spot, they sunk to two games back of the Phillies and the Milwaukee Brewers and find themselves two-and-a-half back of the Diamondbacks ahead of their visit. The Chicago Cubs lost on Saturday and Sunday, so while the Mets did not lose any ground, they missed out on a fantastic chance to gain some ground before Chicago settles in to play the easy part of their schedule.

Along with being a reliable bench bat, Flores set the franchise record with 10 walk-off hits during his time with the team. In 75 games this season, hes hitting .319/.362/.486 with seven home runs, a 119 wRC+, and a 0.9 fWAR. After batting injuries early on, Flores has been raking lately and has played his way into the everyday starting lineup for the Diamondbacks.
